The shock hit it's shock climax on Sunday night, when the murderer set himself alight at the end of a clash with show heroine Sgt Catherine Cawood, played by Lancashire.

“Lots of visitors there would look at me and say ‘You look like someone off the telly’.

“I always get funny looks and even more so now.”

Happy Valley first aired in 2014 charting Sgt Cawood’s police heroics in catching cop killer and rapist, Tommy Lee Royce.

The nail-biting final episode of the series aired on Sunday.
