The English actor, 56, is known for a string of popular TV shows and for being one half of Nineties musical duo, Robson and Jerome. In ‘Extreme Fishing with Robson Green’ and other angling shows, the actor has also shown his skills with a fishing rod. Robson is currently starring in ITV drama ‘Grantchester’ as Detective Inspector Geordie Keating. His character partners up with Reverend Will Davenport as the pair try to solve crimes in the Cambridgeshire village.

The successful show, which is based on the novels by James Runcie, has returned for its sixth season, with the final episode broadcast on ITV tonight.

The last instalment will see Geordie forced to confront dark moments from his past.

As he tries to get the bottom of a murder, the trail leads the detective to a colleague from his Army days.

Since 2019, Grantchester’s Reverend Davenport has been played by ‘Call The Midwife’ actor Tom Brittney.

He took over as the village’s clergyman from season five after the departure of James Norton.

James quit his role as Sidney Chambers at the end of Grantchester’s fourth season.

James and Robson’s time together on the show was eventful at times, with outtakes depicting a prank which went wrong.

As the pair filmed some topless scenes, Robson threw a bucket of water over James, who then fell into a river in a prank gone wrong.

Speaking to Express.co.uk the following year, the actor said James’ slip “wasn’t meant to happen”.

He said: “No, that wasn’t a prank. That wasn’t meant to happen. I s**t myself.

“Seriously, I thought I put one of the most up and coming, exciting, charismatic actors in f**king hospital.

“I thought it would be funny to throw a bucket of water over him and he fell over the edge and just disappeared.

“I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s gone, he’s done.’

“The horror of the telling off I got from the execs and producers – I was reprimanded.”

Robson also spoke about the incident at the time as he appeared on ‘This Morning’ and chatted to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

He said: “There was a time when I thought I’d destroyed the career of James Norton, probably the most popular actor in Britain.

“I just thought it would be a really good idea to throw a bucket of cold water over him and it went pear-shaped.”

James opened up about his departure from Grantchester and why he didn’t continue with the show in an interview with Masterpiece in 2020.

He said: “Rather than do that it felt like it would be better to hand over the baton to someone else and give Grantchester a fresh injection of energy.

“A lot of Grantchester has been seen through Sidney’s eyes and his conflicted soul, so you have really got to know him which is a wonderful blessing for me, but there is only so much you can delve into his soul.”

Grantchester airs on ITV tonight from 9pm-10pm.
