Costume dramas and some classic remakes are among the highlights of ITV’s autumn schedule, which was unveiled on Sunday.

Among the dramas viewers can look forward to are a reworking of 70s hit Bouquet Of Barbed Wire, starring Trevor Eve and Hermione Norris.

The original version, about a dysfunctional family with a controlling patriarch, caused controversy when it was originally screened due to its apparently risque content.

Other big new shows will include Downton Abbey, a costume drama starring Same Maggie Smith, and the return of Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

There will also be a new series of the ghostly thriller Whitechapel, while Stephen Tompkinson will take the lead in the police drama DCI Banks: Aftermath.

And on the entertainment front viewers can expect a new series of Harry Hill’s TV Burp, a special one-off edition of Benidorm, and the return of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

The network’s new breakfast programme Daybreak, fronted by Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley, is also set to launch.

“Downton Abbey and Bouquet Of Barbed Wire are just two highlights of a terrific autumn season, alongside some of the biggest entertainment shows, stunning factual series and at the other end of the schedule, the exciting launch of our new breakfast programme Daybreak,” said ITV’s Director of Television Peter Fincham
