Who is in the cast of ITV's Viewpoint? Everyone from Coronation Street's Catherine Tyldesley to I May Destroy You actress Sarah Niles

If you’re looking for a new series to binge this Spring, you’re in luck as ITV have given us Viewpoint.

The drama was filmed in September last year and follows an investigation into a community in Manchester.

The synopsis reads: "The gripping new drama follows a tense police surveillance investigation into a tight knit Manchester community and explores whether it is ever possible to observe the lives of others with true objectivity and zero effect."

Noel Clarke will lead an all star cast in the new five-part series, but who else stars in the drama, and what else have they been in?
