Gleeson, known for his red hair, has again dyed it brown for the role of Mr McGregor. On set Byrne, who plays Bea, looked pretty in a floral patterned dress as she appeared to crack jokes to her co-stars.

Oyelowo, who played police inspector Javert in the the BBC’s 2018 version of Les Miserables, debuts in the series and was seen wearing a three-piece suit.

Roads were closed and a number of colourful cutouts in the shape of rabbits could be seen lined up along a railing, used in the animation process.

The first film in the live-action series starred the voice of James Corden as the eponymous rabbit and Margot Robbie as Flopsy Rabbit as well as the narrator.

Despite unfavourable reviews, the series will return in 2020 albeit with an altered cast.

Corden returns as Peter Rabbit after rebuking critics of the last film as “snobby”.
