Suranne Jones cuts a dapper figure as she transforms on set of Gentleman Jack series 2

SURANNE Jones cut a dapper figure as she transformed on the set of Gentleman Jack series 2.

The actress wore her character's trademark long flowing jacket and black top hat.

Suranne, 42, was surrounded by masked crew members as she filmed scenes for the BBC period drama.

She completed the look with a velvet waistcoat, leather gloves, trousers and a big-bowed shirt.

Suranne cut a striking figure as she strolled around the grounds of Shibden Hall in Halifax, where the real life Ann Lister, aka Gentleman Jack, once resided.

The day of filming also saw her co-stars Timothy West and Gemma Whelan, who were shooting from atop a carriage.

Whelan, who plays Suranne's on-screen sister Marian, was also seen sharing a joke with crew and at other times holding a pink hot water bottle to stave off the cold.

West, 86, stars as Anne's father Captain Jeremy Lister.

The BBC period drama is based on the real life diaries of Anne, who bucked the social norms of her time to pursue a romantic relationship with Ann Walker.

Ann is played by Sophie Rundle, who last month announced she was pregnant with her first child.

The date of Gentleman Jack's return to our screens is yet to be confirmed but the second series is set to explore to implication of the pair's marriage.

Speaking about what fans can expect from season two, writer Sally Wainwright told Digital Spy: "They move into Shibden together in series two and it's about how they negotiate their married life, conspicuously in public, and how they deal with their detractors and the effect that has on their relationship as well."

Season two was commissioned after just one episode of season one had aired, and Sally is hopeful history will repeat itself and season three will get the green light as soon as possible.

She explained: "Obviously we've got season two, which is fantastic, and I hope it will continue on after that."
