Jodie’s character is a young care worker at a fictional came home who forms a close bond with a 47-year-old patient named Tony, who has early onset Alzheimer's.

Speaking to Tyla about the new drama, Jodie said she ‘loved’ being able to speak in her native Liverpudlian accent.

Jodie explained: "I loved filming in my own accent and it’s the first time I’ve been able to do it in a long time.

"It was so wonderful to do it and to do it with Stephen. My accent gets so much stronger when I’m with him so it probably got very out of hand!

"I think it was so nice to celebrate Liverpool as it's so rarely seen on television. I’ve very rarely been able to use my own accent, so there was something really special about being able to explore that side of myself and the women that I know, and the fire that I know so many of the women in my life have. It kind of felt like a celebration."

Help airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.
