James Norton, who plays Hugo Swann, previously admitted the HBO/Sky Atlantic show will ‘blow peoples minds’.

‘It’s so unpredictable and as a result it’s just so brave,’ he told the Radio Times. ‘That’s what makes the series unique, I think.

‘When you watch episode six, your mind will be blown. Ours was blown when we read it, so watching it is going to be an absolutely crazy experience!’

Of his new character, he added: ‘He’s a pansexual posh boy who runs this orgy club, and he blackmails his contemporaries. t’s an absolute joy to play him.’
