The Pursuit Of Love has arrived on BBC One – here’s a full run down of who’s on the cast.


The Pursuit Of Love is the new TV adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s celebrated novel, originally published in 1945.

Adapted and directed by award-winning actor Emily Mortimer, The Pursuit Of Love is a romantic comedy-drama about love and friendship, starring Lily James as the charismatic and fearless Linda Radlett, and Emily Beecham as her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan.
