YORK was the star of the show this week as filming resumed for the new series of Gentleman Jack.

Lead actor Suranne Jones was snapped in her trademark black, full-length cloak, descending from a horse and carriage in front of the Minster and striding towards the Minster School.

Filming for the first series took place in the city in November 2018.

The show is just one of many productions that have used York as its backdrop over the years.
