When is Grace on again and what is the second episode about? Here's what we know about the ITV drama...

ITV gave us another crime drama to get our teeth stuck into on Sunday evening with Grace.

Based on the Roy Grace books, the feature-length episode followed detective Roy Grace (John Simm) as he tried to find groom Michael, who disappeared during his stag-night.

While there were suspicions Michael had got cold feet and run away from wife-to-be, Ashley, the truth turned out to be much more sinister.
