SINCE bursting on to our television screens nearly two decades ago, Poirot has become entrenched as one of the nation's favourite small-screen shows.

Over the years, the loveable Belgian detective has got to the bottom of notorious crimes, never failing to sniff out the killers.

And soon, Poirot - played by David Suchet - will be solving wrong-doings at Elveden Hall in Suffolk when television crews film the latest instalment of the detective series.

Although cast members and final details of the film are yet to be confirmed, ITV has confirmed that the hall and estate are to be the backdrop for Cat Among the Pigeons.

ITV spokesman Luke Morrison said: “A couple of days filming will be carried out at Elveden, although for security reasons I am unable to say when that is happening.

“We have not announced any of the other cast members, although that is expected to take place in due course.”
