New BBC Two/HBO Drama

Konrad Kay and Mickey DownKonrad Kay and Mickey Down









Casting has been announced for Industry, the new drama coming soon to BBC Two and HBO.

Industry is the debut drama from writers Konrad Kay and Mickey Down, and is an exhilarating dive into the world of international finance, as seen through the eyes of ambitious twenty-somethings struggling to secure their futures. 

The series follows a group of young graduates competing for a limited set of permanent positions at a top investment bank in London - but the boundaries between colleague, friend, lover, and enemy soon blur as they immerse themselves in a company culture defined as much by sex, drugs, and ego as it is by deals and dividends. As members of the group rise and fall, they must decide whether life is about more than the bottom line. 

The cast includes Myha’la Herrold (The Tattooed Heart), Marisa Abela (Cobra), Harry Lawtey (Marcella), David Jonsson (Deep State), Nabhaan Rizwan (Informer), Freya Mavor (The ABC Murders), Will Tudor (Game of Thrones), Conor Macneill (Death and Nightingales) and Ken Leung (Marvel’s Inhumans). 

The eight-part series Industry is filmed in Cardiff and on location in London. It will air on BBC Two and HBO in 2020.

Love Island Host

Laura WhitmoreLaura Whitmore








Laura Whitmore has today been confirmed as host of ITV2's winter edition of Love Island after Caroline Flack had to stand down after being charged with assault.

The broadcaster will front the show when the contestants move into a new villa in South Africa in January.

She previously replaced Flack as host of I'm A Celebrity... Get me Out Of Here's ITV2 spin-off in 2011, and has a weekly show on BBC Radio 5 Live. 

Paul Mortimer, head of ITV's digital channels and acquisitions, said: "I'm delighted that Laura is able to step in this winter on ITV2's biggest show. 

"She is the best person for the job and is a popular and experienced presenter of live television. Whilst Caroline is away, we know that Love Island will be in very safe hands." 

Whitmore said she was "excited" to step into the role but wished her opportunity had come under "better circumstances". 

"Caroline is a brilliant host and also a friend," she said in a statement. "We've spoken a lot in the last few days since she stepped down. She has been very kind to me and strongly pushed me for this role. I've watched her host every series and know I have big boots to fill. I will try and do it justice." 

She added: "Above all, I am a massive fan of this show. I've never been to a Love Island villa, and I can't wait to get in there to meet all the new Islanders looking for love. The Love Island team are the best in the business… including the voice and heart of the show, Iain. He thought he was getting a holiday away from me… not a chance!"
