Brassic star, Michelle Keegan, has shared behind the scenes pictures of Brassic filming in Bacup, Manchester and other locations as filming for season five comes to an end.

Cast and crew have been filming for the fifth season in Bacup, and other north west areas, since last September.

Sky has now confirmed that filming has finished, with the season set to air later this year.

Michelle, who plays Erin Croft in the show, has now shared some pictures taken in between scenes.

Blackburn comedian, Lee Mack, also featured in some pictures after being spotted filming some scenes in Manchester last year.

Posting to her 6.4 million Instagram followers, she said the last six months have been filled with “chaos” and “freezing cold locations.

She said: “Wrap on Brassic season five.

“Can’t believe how fast these past six months have gone. Six months filled with chaotic mayhem, freezing cold locations and a whole lot of love and dedication.

“Feel so lucky to be working on such a special show. Can’t wait for you guys to see what we’ve been up to.”

In other pictures and videos we can see Michelle practicing her ballet skills, posing with a coffee and wrapped up in a coat while sat outside in the cold.

Bronagh Gallagher, who plays Carol Dennings on the show, also shared some pictures from filming.

Posting to Instagram she posted a picture of herself with female cast and crew and said: “What can I say except I love these ladies!

“We have just wrapped on season five of Brassic.

“So many laughs, tears, and friends for life! Thank you to you all for making this journey such a special one/ We can’t wait to share the madness with you all.”

Bacup doubles as the backdrop to the series, the fictional town of Hawley, and the cast have been spotted filming in the town on several occasions over the last few months.

Film crews descended on 1832 Barista coffee shop, on St James Street, in January.

Filming took place both inside and outside the shop.

It is not yet know when exactly Brassic season five will air but a Sky spokesperson suspects it will be around the autumn time, which is when season four was released.

The new season is set to take off from the dramatic events of the series four finale.

Vinnie (played by Chorley’s Joe Gilgun) and the gang face big repercussions from their entanglements with the dangerous McDonagh brothers and powerful drug buyer Manolito.

With both criminal big-wigs now on his case, Vinnie needs to negotiate his exit strategy – and fast.

But there’s a lot on his mind, especially as he’s still trying to figure out what is going on between him and Erin. Can they ever actually be together, and does she really want to share this unhinged and dangerous life with him?

David Livingstone, executive producer for Brassic said: Who can believe it? Series five.

“The only way to go on is to be more audacious and more ambitious than ever. Nobody is resting on their laurels. Five will be our best yet. It’s classic Brassic.”
