Amelia Bullmore as Det Chief Insp Gill Murray

“WONDERFUL. I loved that cast. I loved my beautiful daughter.”

I’ve just asked Amelia Bullmore about playing Caroline Price in Ashes To Ashes.

Caroline was the mother of Alex Drake, played by Keeley Hawes, who has also been the face of Boots No7 cosmetics.

“Still in Boots when I see her looking ravishing above the make-up counter, I think, ‘That’s my girl.’

“Ashes To Ashes was great. And I’d been such a mad fan of Life On Mars.

“It was great to be part of that machine. Very, very good fun.”

I met up with Amelia at ITV Network Centre in London to discuss all things Scott and Bailey.
