Con O’Neill has revealed how his character ‘unravels’ in the new series of Ordinary Lies when he takes drastic action to find out if his wife is cheating.

As the drama returns to BBC1 next week, the focus is on the call centre and warehouse of Coopers, a sports sales firm in Wales, whose staff all seem to have something to hide.

Happy Valley star Con plays head of sales, Joe, whose cheery demeanour is knocked when he suspects his wife Belinda (Jill Halfpenny) is having an affair. Out of desperation, Joe comes up with a secret plan to find out the truth.

Ordinary Lies starts Tuesday October 18 at 9pm on BBC1.
