The Ex-Wife is a new psychological thriller that is set to grip viewers as fans ask how to watch and who's in the cast?

Picture this, Tasha has the perfect house, a loving husband and a beautiful little girl. Her life could be perfect if it wasn't for Jen, her husband's ex-wife who just won't leave them alone after their divorce.

It's a triangle that you'd never imagine and it plays out in four one hour long episodes, of which some fans have likened to TV series Servant after watching the trailer.

Its writer and executive producer Catherine Steadman is best-known for her role as Mabel Lane Fox in Downton Abbey and for writing three books - Something in the Water, Mr Nobody, and The Disappearing Act. And this TV series is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Jess Ryder.

Speaking about how she chooses her roles, Celine explained in an interview with Hunger Magazine, "I think the main thing that I’m drawn to, and I don’t think it’s a surprise, is complexity. 

"I don’t think I’m particularly interested in stories with moral absolutes. I like the grey areas in characters because I don’t really believe that anyone’s all good or all bad.”
