JEREMY Piven has plenty in store for viewers when he returns tonight in Mr Selfridge.

I was delighted to be asked by ITV to write the cast interviews for this 10-part second series.

Having also done the same for the opening season.

Oxford Street, London, 1909. Then one year before.

Mr Selfridge opens its doors for business on ITV1 at 9pm on Sunday (January 6).

The beginning of a 10-part series with plenty of drama, romance and sheer fun in store.

They tell the true stories of the five young women murdered in Ipswich by Steve Wright in 2006.

All five bodies being discovered over the space of 10 shocking days.
