The Durrells series 3 2018

It's the third series of the hit ITV show with eight brand new hour-long episodes concluding tonight at 8PM on the channel.

The Durrells cast

Fans of the first series will no doubt be happy to learn that Keeley Hawes reprises her lead role as Louisa Durrell for series three.

Also reprising their roles in the upcoming series are Alexis Georgoulis (Marionetes) as Spiro, Anna Savva (Tyrant) as Lugaretzia, Yorgos Karamihos (Ben- Hur) as Theodore, Lucy Black (Call The Midwife) as Florence, Ulric Von Der Esch (Crossing Lines) as Sven, James Cosmo (SS-GB) as Creech and Leslie Caron (Chocolat) as the Countess Mavrodaki.

New faces to join the cast for the series include Miles Jupp (Howard’s End), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (Indian Summers) and newcomer Elli Triggou.

In the new series, Louisa has made the decision to give up searching for love, choosing instead to focus on her family.

However, with Larry struggling to write his third novel, Margo in search of a new vocation, Gerry continuing to grow his menagerie and Leslie juggling three different girls, Louisa has her work cut out.

With an imminent arrival from her Aunt (Barbara Flynn), Louisa hopes that Hermione will be able to help set her children back on the straight and narrow.

In tonight's fifth episode, Louisa becomes jealous of Spiros spending time with a new Italian family who have arrived on the island – the effortlessly beautiful and impossibly glamorous Ferraris.

Determined to find out more about her competition, Louisa invites the seemingly perfect family to the house, but soon starts to suspect that there is more to them than meets the eye.

Margo in particular is dazzled by eldest daughter, Clara, and feels inferior. However, her attempts to aspire to her idol’s perfection go awry when she kisses the feet of Saint Spyridion.

Meanwhile, Larry joins the fire service and Gerry falls for a local girl.

The Durrells airs at 8PM tonight on ITV.
