Scott & Bailey: Lesley Sharp, Suranne Jones and Amelia Bullmore reveal all about the new series Scott and Bailey's production team has moved into a former police station in Manchester to film their fourth series, but today the staff canteen more resembles the Great British Bake Off tent. Cast and crew have brought in homemade cakes for a charity baking contest and actress Suranne Jones is very pleased with her creations.

“I’ve called them Bailey’s Buns because they’re moist, quick and easy,” she laughs. “When I made them, I was imagining that I was Rachel, which Lesley Sharp really couldn’t understand. She said to me, ‘what do you mean, you’ve made them as Rachel?’ And I said, ‘well, Rachel’s not very clean, is she?’”

At this point Jones mimes picking her nose and wiping her finger on the table. “I was joking, of course. But Les got really worried and said she didn’t want to taste them. Hers are beautiful and decorated with raspberries and have got an ornate pot of yogurt on the side. Mine have got traces of red wine and Weetabix in them. But you do get a free sparkler!”

Although Jones claims to have been baking in character, there does seem to be a slight element of the tomboyish Rachel Bailey and the composed Janet Scott to the actresses who play them. “I was dreading you having to interview us in our trailers,” Jones admits. “I would have been embarrassed if you’d gone from mine to Lesley’s. She’s got cushions and throws and lots of lovely things. We’ve also got rooms upstairs in this building and Les’s looks like a proper sitting room. No one else’s does. We all marvel at Lesley, really."

The pair’s off-screen friendship was forged back in 2011 during hours spent filming in a car on the moors for the first series. These days, breaks from shooting are spent having cups of tea and browsing through homeware magazines, which is more than can be said for Scott and Bailey of late.

In the last run of episodes, the two cops had a heated bust-up that threatened their friendship and left fans concerned that they’d be left permanently at loggerheads. The pair just about managed to make it up in the end, but did the stars of the show worry that it was all becoming too fractious?

“I think everybody felt that,” admits Sharp. “It was funny being on set and having to be mean to each other. Usually, you get Scott and Bailey colluding and undermining things together. So we didn’t like it. We didn’t like not being friends.”

“It’s something that Lesley and I talk about all the time,” says Jones. “People want to see them getting on. The viewers don’t want to see them battling because that’s not what the show is about. So we’re now aware that if the script says that they’re ‘jibing’ or ‘bickering’, then we’re doing it in a way that’s light. ”

However, despite the rapprochement, there will still be competition between Rachel and Janet in series four as the two detectives both try out for the same sergeant’s job. Is there a worry that this tussle over promotion will lead to further fall-outs? “We’re at pains to show women as good, cooperative and supportive colleagues,” says Sharp. “There is a competitiveness between them, but it’s out in the open. There’s no unpleasant skulduggery or bitching. They both want to succeed, but it’s a healthy depiction of two women in the workplace rather than an archetypal telly catfight.”...
