Nolly comes to ITVX from Thursday 2nd February and to ITV1 at a later date.

Noele (or Nolly to her friends) was a legend in her own lifetime. As flame-haired widow Meg Richardson in the long-running soap opera Crossroads, she was one of the most famous people in Britain. Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of Nolly’s fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning and with no explanation. With the boss’s words “all good things must come to an end” ringing in her ears, Noele Gordon found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for over 18 years.

From writer Russell T Davies and executive producer Nicola Shindler, starring Helena Bonham Carter and Mark Gatiss.

Nolly will be accompanied by a documentary entitled ‘The Real Nolly’ which will also be available from 2nd February. – (Source: ITV)
