THE producers of Poldark and Victoria have promised a darker twist on Pride And Prejudice when they bring the classic period drama to screens again.

Marking the UK’s sixth TV adaptation of the story, but the first for ITV, Mammoth Screen have commissioned Consent playwright Nina Raine to take on the job of penning the script.

Having never seen any televised versions of the story, Raine told Radio Times magazine: “Pride And Prejudice is actually a very adult book, much less bonnet-y than people assume.

“I hope I do justice to Austen’s dark intelligence – sparkling, yes, but sparkling like granite.”

MARK Wright has announced he is moving to Hollywood after landing a television job across the pond.

The former star of The Only Way Of Essex – who is married to Our Girl actress Michelle Keegan – said he will be one of the hosts of American news programme Extra TV alongside stars including Mario Lopez.

He wrote on Instagram that the role was “a dream come true”.
