EXCLUSIVE: ITV’s upcoming comedy series Cabbage and Pat has found another of its main cast members. I’ve learned that Diane Morgan has joined the comedy as a series regular. Morgan’s previous credits include Robert’s Web, Mount Pleasant and Him & Her.
The casting of Diane Morgan comes after TVWise previously broke the news that Cherie Lunghi and Barbara Flynn have been cast in the series as the two leads. I’ve also learned that Ozzie Yue, Jackie Knowles and Marcquelle Ward have all filmed guest roles on the show’s first season.
Created by Amy Shindler and Beth Chalmers, Cabbage and Pat follows two women, one widowed and one divorced, who together find a new lust for life. The comedy series is being produced by Red Production Company. Richard Webb is serving as the producer, with Red’s Nicola Shindler executive producing. The Syndicate helmer Syd Macartney is directing the skein. Production on the series started last month in Manchester.
