Richard Madden gets steamy in this first look at Lady Chatterley's Lover

BBC One has previewed Lady Chatterley's Lover with a steamy new trailer.

Holliday Grainger and Richard Madden struggle to control their passion for each other in the 40-second teaser, which offers a first look at Jed Mercurio's adaptation.

Happy Valley actor James Norton also stars in the BBC's retelling of Dh Lawrence's famous 20th century novel.

The team behind the drama have promised that it will be as raunchy as its source material, with producer Serena Cullen teasing that the sex scenes approach the limits of what can be shown on mainstream TV.

Lady Chatterley's Lover was first published in Italy in 1928. Telling the story of an upper-class woman's affair with her gamekeeper, the book was only published uncensored in the UK in 1960, prompting a famous obscenity trial which Penguin Books won.

Ken Russell previously directed an adaptation of the novel starring Joely Richardson and Sean Bean in 1993.

Lady Chatterley's Lover producer "shocked" by raunchy sex scenes - but writer Jed Mercurio promises emotion, too

The team behind the BBC's new adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover has promised the series will be as raunchy as Dh Lawrence's famous novel.

Producer Serena Cullen has revealed that some scenes from the new drama left her "quite shocked" and approached the limits of what can be shown on mainstream TV.

"I was quite shocked reading the script, and when I saw the film, watching one sex scene," Cullen told The Sun.

"I have never seen anyone do the things Mellors, the gamekeeper, does to Lady Chatterley. I'm not sure what more we could have shown unless it was for porn.

"I've watched lots of Hollywood films where the girl wears a bra in bed - we didn't do that. So apart from them having sex starkers, which you wouldn't be able to put on any channel, I think we are quite rude."

However, screenwriter Jed Mercurio also promised

The Riot Club: When Being Posh Is Not Enough

Those of us who lead hapless lives know how frightening getting up in the morning can be. Instead of rising and embracing the daylight with an ardent cuddle and a zealous "Yahoo!" we see grey clouds overhead and wonder aloud, "What now?" Another egg carton with broken shells? A second bedbug infestation within twelve months? Still no replies to our Christian Mingles ad even though we've noted we can recite the Book of Revelation by heart in Latin?

Ah, if only we were born into a family of elites. The ultra-rich. Aristocrats with an enviable gene pool.

But instead we're impoverished and pear-shaped with squinty eyes and in need of Proactiv+.

On top of these misfortunes, we really know the gods are against us if while fingering the remote, we accidentally come across Joshua Jackson in The Skulls (2000), and begin to watch it out of inertia. This incapacitating thriller was inspired by Yale's secretive society,

Robson Green: 'Strike Back's final series is the best yet'

Robson Green has teased the final series of Strike Back, which airs later this year.

The actor and presenter stars as Colonel Philip Locke in the Sky1 and Cinemax action series, which returns after a two-year gap due to an injury to co-star Sullivan Stapleton.

Robson Green talks 'living the dream' for new series Ultimate Catch

"It's the best yet," he told Digital Spy. "Michael Bassett directs an absolutely thrilling end to what has been an incredible action series for television.

"What an experience, hitting 50 and taking on North Korea and saving the western world from a missile attack."

Green said that he continues to enjoy filming action scenes, despite hitting the age milestone last year.

"The action scenes are fine - [with] any series you've got to look after yourself," he explained.

"There's this wonderful guy I've trained with forever called Adam Shepherd. He actually just texted me five minutes ago saying,
