Channel 5 psychological thriller For Her Sins stars EastEnders' Jo Joyner as Laura, a woman who appears to have it all, but is struggling to balance her work with her home life. When a mysterious woman, played by All Creatures Great and Small star Rachel Shenton, enters the frame, her life spirals out of control.


"I'm really looking forward to working on this gripping thriller for Channel 5," said Joyner. "There is such a contradiction with the character of Laura, so focused and organised in her work life and yet chaotic and insecure with her home life. I feel it really resonates. I am so looking forward to working with Rachel Shenton and for us to bring these 2 flawed women to the screen."

Shenton added: "Jo Rogers has created such a dark and compelling story that has two women at its centre, I loved it and couldn't put it down. I can't wait to bring Emily to life - she's wild."
