New BBC drama Chloe

Chloe on BBC One cast: Female leads from The Crown, Stay Close and Harlots

It's a thrilling line-up of actresses just about to go stellar

| Updated:

Chloe starts on BBC One tonight with a cast of truly exciting up-and-coming young actors.

The show, a twisted social media thriller, is written by Sex Education‘s Alice Seabright, and is already getting oodles of praise from reviewers.

We’ve seen the first couple of episodes too and are totally hooked. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

What is Chloe on BBC One about?

Starring, Erin Doherty, Chloe’s official blurb says: “Still living with her mum and working as a temp, Becky compares herself to the picture-perfect lives on Instagram, compulsively returning to one account: Chloe’s.”

“Becky obsessively watches her seemingly flawless life through social media. But when Chloe dies suddenly, Becky’s need to find out how and why leads her to assume a new identity and engineer a ‘chance’ meeting with Chloe’s best friend, Livia, and infiltrate Chloe’s group of close-knit friends.

“Through her alter-ego Sasha, Becky becomes a powerful, transgressive heroine; a popular, well-connected ‘someone’ with a life, and loves, that are far more exciting and addictive than the ‘no-one’ she is as Becky. However, the pretence soon obscures and conflates reality, and Becky risks losing herself completely in the game she is playing.”

Sounds great, right? Dark, but great.

When does Chloe start on BBC One?

So the most important thing is where and when can you watch it, right? The good news is there’s not long to wait.

The first episode is set to air on Sunday (February 6) on BBC One at 9pm. There are six episodes in total and you can watch them all on iPlayer after ep one has aired.

Who’s in the Chloe cast?

Erin Doherty, best known for her role as young Princess Anne in The Crown, plays Becky Green. She’s the main character who infiltrates the lives of Chloe’s friends.

Poppy Gilbert, most recently seen in  Netflix’s Stay Close as one of the psychopathic dancing serial killers, is the eponymous Chloe.

Gangs of London and Harlots actor, Pippa Bennett-Warner, stars as Livia, Chloe’s best friend and the person Becky/Sasha targets first of all.

The support cast is excellent too, with a special mention for Lisa Palfrey (C.O.B.R.A and Sex Education) as Becky’s mum, Pam.

Chloe airs Sundays at 9pm on BBC One from February 6.
