The series starts in the late 1950s, when Bobby first met Tina Dean in a nightclub in Ilford.

It then spans across to the 1980s, including Bobby’s first cancer diagnosis and the 1966 World Cup final.

The official synopsis for the series says: "Based on the memoirs of Tina Moore, this is the epic love story of football's original golden couple: an ordinary girl who falls for an ordinary boy only to be launched into an extraordinary life."

Now 75-years-old, Tina Moore had a lot to do with the making of the series and it was created from her very own memoirs, Bobby Moore: By The Person Who Knew Him Best.

She even worked as a script consultant and met with Michelle Keegan to help her get into character.
