ACTRESS and comic Catherine Tate takes on a new identity in a TV drama partly filmed in Huddersfield.
She plays the harassed mum of a teenage girl in The Bad Mother's Handbook, based on the best- selling novel.
The one-off drama - which is on ITV1 at 9pm on Monday - is about three generations of women from the same family.
The cast also includes Anne Reid and The League of Gentlemen's Steve Pemberton.
Interior scenes were shot in a warehouse in Armitage Bridge previously used for another TV drama, Where The Heart Is.
Catherine Tate said she enjoyed filming in Yorkshire and hoped to work here again.
She became a patron of the Huddersfield-based Laura Crane Trust after reading about the cancer charity when she stayed at a hotel in the town while filming.
She said: "I'm always happy to work in the North. I think it's a great place and I've always had a great time when I have been there," she said.
The ITV programme tells of a year in the lives of three feisty females, 17-year-old Charlotte (Holly Grainger), her mum, Karen (Catherine Tate) and Karen's mum Nan (Anne Reid).
Their story is an adaptation of The Bad Mother's Handbook by Kate Long.
She visited the set at Armitage Bridge and said the attention to detail was amazing.
"I can't believe how realistic the rooms are once you step beyond the lighting rigs," she said.
"The detail is incredible, mocked-up family photos and general clutter."
Several scenes were shot at Otley and in Leeds.
Anne Reid, who starred in Victoria Wood's sitcom Dinnerladies, said: "I really enjoyed filming in the North. I lived there for many years before I moved to London and I miss it.
"I love the countryside, so it was great to get out on the moors."
