Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel Les Misérables has been adapted into a multi-award stage musical as well as an Oscar winning movie.

But proving there’s still life in the classic tale, the BBC is working on a new adaptation of Les Misérables, with some of the all-star cast spotting filming in the heart of Brussels on Sunday.

Dominic West, who leads the series as Jean Valjean was pictured with Ellie Bamber who stars as Cosette at the church of í Saint-Jean-Baptiste.

Ellie was in full costume, teaming a bonnet with a full-skirted cream dress and an elaborate curled up-do.

The streets around the church were transformed for filming, with period shop fronts in place while a horse and cart paraded up and down.

Filming for Les Misérables began in February 2018 in Belgium and Northern France with an air date yet to be confirmed by the BBC.
