Sledmere’s starring role in new ITV murder mystery

Sledmere House is being broadcast into living rooms across the UK after the stately home and its grounds were used to film a drama series that is currently streaming on ITVX.

In October 2021, Sledmere House was used as the set for part of ITV’s new drama, The Confessions of Frannie Langton, which became available on the channel’s new streaming service last week.

The four-part murder mystery is set in Georgian London and narrates the lead character, Frannie’s, journey from a Jamaican plantation to the Mayfair mansion of scientist George Benham and his wife Madame Marguerite Benham,

Frannie, played by Karla-Simone Spence, is gifted to Benham by John Langton, the man who owns her, and she is employed as a maid in the household.

Events take a twist when the Benhams are found murdered in bed, with Frannie lying next to Marguerite, and she is accused of murder.

Despite protesting her innocence, Frannie is taken to prison, where she attempts to piece together the events of the night.

The series was filmed entirely in Yorkshire, with other locations including Hull and York.

All episodes of The Confessions of Frannie Langtoft are available to watch now on ITVX and will be broadcast on ITV1 during 2023.
