He may be more used to the glamour of Beverley Hills, but there were reports of movie star Channing Tatum being spotted in a Norfolk town today.

Rumours circulated online that the actor, who is known for films such as the Step Up series, Dear John, and Magic Mike, was in Dereham to film a remake of movie The Bodyguard.

But it is believed scenes being filmed are instead for a new BBC series called Bodyguard - and the cast list does not include the Hollywood star.

The series, from the creators of Line of Duty and starring Richard Madden (who played Robb Stark in Game of Thrones) and Keeley Hawes, is filming scenes at Dereham Railway Station and has a base at Dereham Town Football Club's ground Aldiss Park.

The Mid-Norfolk Railway has also been in front of the cameras this week when the BBC One Inside Out crew visited for filming on Thursday.
