BBC’s A Very British Scandal full cast and when it will be on

It is a fact-based drama depicting the 1963 divorce of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll.

The Radio Times described it as “one of the most extraordinary and brutal legal cases of the 20th century, notorious for scandalous accusations and salacious photographs”.

Margaret and Ian first meet when he is still married and she is in the final stages of a divorce.

They eventually marry and begin work on reopening his ancestral castle – a task that leads to massive debts and rising tensions.
