ITV's wartime drama Home Fires returned to our television screens at the weekend for its second series, starring HH client RUTH GEMMELL in one of the leading roles.

The drama takes us back to the heart of a rural Cheshire community during the Second World War, where a group of inspirational women band together to keep their world – and the nation – from falling apart while the men are away fighting at the front.

RUTH returns to the role of Sarah Collingborne. The last time we saw her in the previous series, she had struck up a strong friendship with new pal RAF officer Nick Lucas while her husband Adam was away serving as an army chaplain. But in this new series, when Nick returns from Dunkirk, Sarah receives some devastating news about Adam, suddenly making her future seem more uncertain than ever.

Home Fires is showing on Sundays at 9pm on ITV. Tune in this weekend for the second episode and if you missed the series premiere, catch up now on ITV Player. Here's the series trailer:
