You might think of Monaco, St. Barts, or even Hvar when you imagine a playground for Idris Elba, Naomi Campbell, Ed Sheeran, and Liam Payne, but you generally don't think of Accra. Ghanaians, you just might after Crazy Rich. This is so that the glittery, stylish, and gorgeous set can hang out; a side of the West African country that is rarely seen.

Joined for the ride by another famous comedian mate who's a first-time visitor to Ghana, Eddie's taking them and us behind-the-scenes of this high-end, mega-rich, uber-luxe side of Ghana, whilst also digging deep into the beauty of the country's culture and history. Eddie knows all the places worth going and all the people worth knowing, from lavish retreats and extravagant restaurants to billionaire business stories of success, innovators, multi-millionaire playboys and Afrobeats megastars.

Ten Pound Poms - Sarring Michelle Keegan, Faye Marsay and Warren Brown

Michelle Keegan (Brassic; Our Girl), Faye Marsay (Game Of Thrones; Black Mirror) and Warren Brown (The Responder; Luther) lead the cast of brand new drama Ten Pound Poms alongside Australian actors Rob Collins (Mystery Road; Firebite), Leon Ford (Elvis; The Light Between Oceans), Declan Coyle (Long Black; Life Of Jess), David Field (Shantaram; Preacher), Stephen Curry (Hounds Of Love; The Castle), Hattie Hook (Savage River; Of An Age), Finn Treacy (The Portable Door; Young Rock) and Emma Hamilton (The Tudors; Mr Selfridge).

The six-part series follows a group of British people as they leave gloomy post-war Britain in 1956 for a life-changing experience on the other side of the world. They were promised a better property, better employment chances, and a higher quality of life by the sea in sun-drenched Australia for only a tenner.

However, living in Australia isn't precisely the beautiful dream that newcomers have been promised. We follow their victories and challenges as they adjust to a new life in a new nation, far from Britain and familiarity, as they struggle with their new identity as immigrants.

Annie (Faye Marsay) and Terry Roberts are at the centre of the story (Warren Brown). They strive to make the best of the circumstances for themselves and their families.

They aren't the only people at the hostel avoiding the truth. Kate (Michelle Keegan) is a young nurse who arrives without her fiancé and will do whatever it takes to try and rewrite her devastating past. Bill (Leon Ford) has lost his family business back home and is so desperate to prove he's living the Australian dream that he'll stop at nothing in order to get a lifestyle he can't sustain. Teenager Stevie (Declan Coyle) comes from a troubled background and hopes to use this new adventure to escape his oppressive father. Meanwhile, Ron (Rob Collins), an Indigenous Australian war veteran, struggles with feeling like an outsider in his own country.

Danny Brocklehurst says: "Ten Pounds Poms demands an ensemble cast that we are always rooting for, actors we love and want to succeed. I am thrilled to have found those actors. It is a delight to welcome so much exciting Australian talent as well as working with the brilliant Faye and Warren for the first time. This is my third outing with the wonderful Michelle Keegan and I'm positive we will make another winner together."
