The series is filmed in Northleach, but is loosely based on her and her brother’s life in Cirencester.

She plays Kerry Mucklowe, while Charlie plays her cousin Lee 'Kurtan' Mucklowe and their dad Paul - who is starring alongside Daisy on Celebrity Gogglebox - plays Kerry's selfish dad, Martin.

Thanks to her brilliant performance as Kerry, actress Daisy won the 2018 BAFTA TV Award for Best Female Comedy Performance.

Before starring on This Country, Daisy landed her first role as a young mother in the ITV series Doc Martin.

But she then left and returned to the West Country, working as a cleaner and moving in with her brother Charlie.

In 2014, she landed the role of PC Garvey in the TV series The Wrong Mans before a pilot of This Country was shot in the same year.

A second series was commissioned and aired on BBC Three in February 2018, while a third aired earlier this year.

Daisy also played Peggotty in The Personal History of David Copperfield, and had a part in Armando Iannucci's HBO space comedy Avenue 5.

Away from her career, Daisy married her long-term partner, Will Weston last year and the couple have a daughter named Pip.

The star announced in March that she’s expecting their second child.
