Meet the Ten Pound Poms 2023 cast

New drama Ten Pound Poms has arrived on BBC One – here’s a full run down of who’s on the cast.

The six-part series, created by BAFTA-winning Danny Brocklehurst (Brassic, Ordinary Lies), follows a group of Brits who move to Australia in the 1950s.

A teaser shares: “For only a tenner, they have been promised a better house, better job prospects and a better quality of life by the sea in sun-soaked Australia. But life down under isn’t exactly the idyllic dream the new arrivals have been promised.
