Michael is on Instagram and he has been sharing plenty of updates regarding his role in the ITV hit, No Return.

On his first day of filming, he said: “Very excited to be on board with this fantastic production & script.” [Sic]

The show’s writer, Danny Brocklehurst, said: “Michael Jibson was a revelation as Martin.

“That was a very difficult part to cast because Martin is quite weak and actors don’t like to play weak.

“But Michael gave it a real truth.”

Opening up about his role in No Return, he said: “What I found so interesting about playing Martin is he had to do some work on himself quite quickly.

“To try and become the man that maybe his wife wanted him to be.

“But ultimately who he didn’t have the confidence to be. That, again, is what is brilliant about Danny’s writing.

“It’s all there for you to play without it being plastered in the script.”

He and co-star Sheridan Smith have recently worked together in the BBC series Four Lives.

No Return airs on ITV on Mondays at 9pm
