Celia Imrie has signed to star in Love Sarah, a feel-good drama from first-time filmmaker Eliza Schroeder, written by Jake Brunger, an alumnus of the BBC’s 2017 New Talent Hotlist and BBC TV Drama Writers’ Programme.

The film is about a young woman who enlists the help of her mother’s best friend and her eccentric estranged grandmother to fulfil her late mother’s dream of opening a bakery in Notting Hill. It is now shooting in London.

Bill Paterson, Shannon Tarbet, Shelley Conn and Rupert Penry-Jones will co-star and Candice Brown, winner of UK baking show The Great British Bake Off in 2016, will make a guest appearance.
