"The hope was to see whether we could tell this story over 12 episodes," she told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

She added: "It's really exciting, I think they've done a terrific job."

Questioned whether there would be any more seasons, Joanne said: "No more liar, that will be the ending.

"It will be very exciting."

What happened in Liar season 1

Liar saw school teacher Laura Nielson (Joanne Froggartt) accuse respected surgeon Andrew Earlham (Gruffudd) of rape.

The series started by following both sides of the story, with viewers not knowing whether Andrew was guilty.

Laura was accused of making false allegations about being drugged by the doctor, with both their backgrounds looked into throughout each episode.

But as Andrew continued to plead innocence, it was revealed he had sexually assaulted her, along with other women.

During tense scenes Laura uncovered footage of Andrew raping a 17-year-old, but by the time the police rushed to arrest him, he’d disappeared.

In the closing scene of the final episode, Andrew is then seen in the muddy marshes, with his clothes soaking wet and his throat slit.
