More than 5.3 million people tuned in to watch the popular Calderdale-based series Last Tango.

The third season of Last Tango in Halifax waltzed back onto TV and brought a storyline full of secrets, wedding bells and scandals with it.

The second episode of the popular romantic BBC One drama series introduced Alan’s secret love child Gary into the picture and built suspense for the upcoming wedding of Kate, played by Nina, Sosanya, and Caroline, played by Sarah Lancashire.

So far, this season has featured scenes filmed in the Market Arcade in Halifax town centre when Alan was reunited with Gary, a successful businessman who owns Huddersfield Town FC, in a secret meeting.

Holdsworth House hotel and restaurant featured heavily in the last season.

Liz Howe, marketing manager for Holdsworth House said: “Filming of Last Tango series 2 at Holdsworth House has helped to put the hotel on the world stage. We have welcomed guests from Scandinavia, the USA and Australia on our Real Last Tango in Halifax Break, which we developed during series one of the show.

“In fact that’s how we came to the attention of the production company and went on to secure filming of series two. It was incredible to watch behind the scenes.”

The next episode of Last Tango in Halifax will appear on Sunday (January 11) at 9pm on BBC One.
