The biopic comes from Russell T. Davies, and is the debut project for Nicola Shindler’s ITV Studios-backed drama label Quay Street Productions, according to Deadline.

Nolly will tell the story of Noele Gordon, who played Meg Richardson in hit ITV soap Crossroads before being abruptly axed at the height of the show’s success.

With the boss’s words “all good things must come to an end” ringing in her ears, Gordon found herself thrown out of the show that was her life for almost 20 years.

Two years after she was fired, Noele died in 1985.

Nolly will be a three part series for the network, and is expected to air in 2022.

It was just announced that Helena will also be part of the Harry Potter reunion.
