The Durrells returned to ITV for a third series of sun-drenched whimsy on Sunday night – and it was just what many viewers needed to get through an evening of snowy blizzards in the UK.
Set in Corfu, the show has become a form of escapism for some fans, who were overjoyed to see it returning to screens.
- Follow in the footsteps of The Durrells and discover Corfu’s unspoilt north-east coast
- Keeley Hawes and The Durrells clan reveal all about their own animals
- Meet the cast of The Durrells series 3
The Corfu tourism board must do very well out of The Durrells, given that many people on Twitter were fantasising about jetting off to sunny Greece…
Just adore this programme, it makes me want to runway to the sun n never come back! ???? #TheDurrells

After all this freezing snow it will be lovely to watch #TheDurrells on ITV now. Just watching it you can feel the heat of Corfu. Exactly what you need for a cold Sunday evening. ????????☀

Not only did Corfu look tempting, but so did Sri Lanka – with The Good Karma Hospital airing straight afterwards on ITV…
