The character also uses the dating service herself, and is matched with Sophia (played by Jana Pérez), who lives in Barcelona.

Sophia and Kate get to know each other via Zoom, and Sophia subsequently comes to visit her in London.

However, while she is waiting to meet her, Sophia is involved in a road accident - and falls into a coma.

Speaking about filming her scenes over Zoom, Zoë told the Express: "There are two things to say about that. First of all, Zoom conversations anyway are quite strange and we’ve all had to get used to them over the last year in a much bigger way.

"There is a slight disconnect anyway, it’s not quite the same as being physically in the same room as somebody. So there is an element of that.”

She added: "Fortunately, just in purely practical terms I had already met Jana the actress.“She’s a very vivacious, bubbly woman so I had already had the experience of her charisma.

"We didn’t even have each other at all times on the screen, sometimes I was just doing my performance to a blank screen.“I wasn’t actually doing a performance to her face or her speaking.

"So it was a bit of a challenge, because always you’re looking for the connection between the two characters.

"But she’s a very easy person to act with, I still found it delightful working with her."
