Speaking about how Alice initially reacts to Harry’s death, creator Simon Nye said: “Initially Alice doesn’t know how to react. Then she remembers Harry hated gloom so she puts on a crazy, bright dress.

“It takes a very self-contained and controlled person to know how to behave because at that age you don’t plan for a partner’s death. Alice doesn’t know what to do.
“Her daughter Charlotte, perhaps because children all subconsciously think their parents are ancient, manages to hold in her emotions and so becomes the “sensible” one.
“Which, in a way, gives Alice carte blanche to indulge her feelings. Whatever she feels, she shares and that’s not always helpful.”
Finding Alice continues next Sunday, January 24 at 9pm on ITV.
