Bradley Walsh will star with his son, Barney, in ITV’s big budget reboot of The Darling Buds of May


BRADLEY Walsh will star with his son in ITV’s big budget reboot of The Darling Buds of May.

Barney, 23, will play a village policeman in The Larkins — while Bradley, 60, is Pop Larkin.

The pair have already worked together on three series of ITV travel show Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad.

An insider said: “Their adventures gained around 5million viewers an episode, and producers hope to bring some of that audience to The Larkins.”

Bradley and Barney previously appeared together in the 2013 series of thriller Law & Order: UK.

The Larkins will also star Bridgerton’s Sabrina Bartlett, 29, as Mariette Larkin — the role which made Catherine Zeta-Jones famous in the first TV adaptation of the H.E. Bates novel.

Hugely popular comedy-drama The Darling Buds of May aired from 1991 to 1993, with Sir David Jason as Pop.

The insider added: “Pairing Bradley and Barney adds to the growing anticipation for this reinvention of a show which holds a special place in the hearts of a generation of viewers.”

Last week The Sun revealed EastEnders would be keeping things in the family with Love Island winner Dani Dyer, 24, having a cameo as a cab driver who picks up Mick Carter, played by her dad Danny, 43.
