Filming of ITV’s “Grace” to Continue in Downtown Burgess Hill Brighton News

Filming for the hit ITV drama Grace is set to continue in a new location over the coming weeks.

The second series in the series, starring John Simm, is set to begin filming in Burgess Hill soon and could run until the end of the year.

Filming began last month around Brighton with the lead actor spotted in various locations.

Grace is an adaptation of Sussex author Peter James’ internationally bestselling book Dead Simple.

It was one of ITV’s most successful dramas with over eight million people watching the first series earlier this year.

The second series will consist of three 120-minute films – Not Dead Enough, Dead Man’s Footsteps and Dead Tomorrow.

Teams will descend into downtown Burgess Hill over the next week and use three different locations.

Eco2Home, a store selling a variety of repurposed items, from furniture to clothing, will serve as the mortuary for the show.

The back of the store will be used for getting bodies in and out, and a room will also be used for a hospital scene.

Lidl’s old disused building in Burgess Hill will also be used as the interior of the morgue and the Martlets Heights building is said to be a police station.

Lee Barnett, 42, who founded Eco2Home last year, said: “It’s all really exciting, you don’t get anything like that normally in Burgess Hill. As soon as I got the call for the show, I watched the whole first series and it’s really good.

“My mom loves Peter James and is a huge John Simm fan, so she’s even more horny than me.”

Lee also said he hopes the shoot could draw traffic to the city center, much of which is currently decommissioned as plans to turn it into a multiplex have been scrapped.

“Because everything has just been left, it’s a bit of a state and people aren’t just walking around anymore. I hope now that they will hear that the filming is going on and that they want to go and throw a at a glance, which could lead them to enter the companies that are still there, ”he said.

ITV asked Lee to use items from his shop for sets for different shows in the future.
