AS FILMING for the brand new series of ITV's Grace is wrapping up this week, here is a look back at its top shooting locations across Sussex.

The series producer Kiaran Murray Smith revealed on Tuesday that this week is set to be the last of the filming for the show.

Grace is an adaption of Sussex author Peter James’ international bestselling book Dead Simple.

The second series of the show, starring John Simm, comes after the huge success of the first.

Alongside Simm, Richie Campbell and Line of Duty star Craig Parkinson have also been seen filming.

Crews first descended on Brighton during the summer when shoots began across the city before moving into other parts of Sussex.

Filming began in August and cast and crew were seen at well-known spots across Brighton such as the station, the pier and the Proud Cabaret bar.

Lighting rigs and equipment lorries lined Hove promenade as preparations were put in place to film at Rockwater.

Crews also used Brookland Park car park in Lancing as a base in October while they shot new scenes for the show.

Various locations in Burgess Hill town centre also hosted teams for hospital, mortuary and police station scenes.

HRH the Duchess of Cornwall, who is a big fan of the Peter James novels, came to visit the set at Shoreham Port in early November.

The Duchess even joked to Peter James, who was also on set, that she would “like a cameo role one day”.

Peter said he would definitely like to see the Duchess in the Roy Grace story, and he has even written her into one of his books.

The Brighton-born author recently told The Argus that he had to "fight really hard" to keep the filming for the series in Sussex, where the books are set.

In a tweet, Grace producer Kiaran Murray-Smith made the announcement that filming was coming to an end and thanked author Peter.

He said: "Last week of filming for this series of #Grace #NotDeadEnough #DeadMansFootsteps #DeadTomorrow with @Cparks1976 @Brad_D_Morrison @lauraelph @richkidcampbell @RakieAyola #JohnSimm. Great scripts and fab locations all in and around #Brighton. Thank you @peterjamesuk! @itvstudios".

The new series will be three 120-minute films - Not Dead Enough, Dead Man’s Footsteps and Dead Tomorrow.

It is expected to air in March 2022 at the earliest.
