Georgie Henley and Ophelia Lovibond lead Partygate, with Jon Culshaw lending his voice to the drama as ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Channel 4’s factual drama, Partygate centres around two fictional Special Advisors Grace Greenwood, played by Georgie Henley and Annabel D’acre, played by Ophelia Lovibond.
Based on meticulous research of real events inside Downing Street, it will tell the inside story in dramatic re-enactments interwoven with news archive footage and documentary interviews, showing the horrors of Covid unfold across the nation, while staff at Number 10 kicked back at a string of parties lubricated by quantities of alcohol.
Impressionist Jon Culshaw will also be making a guest appearance as the voice of former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
Starring alongside Henley, Lovibond and Culshaw will be Phil Daniels, Rebecca Humphries, Hugh Skinner, Charlotte Richie, Craig Parkinson, Tom Durant-Pritchard, Anthony Calf, Alice Lowe, Kimberly Nixon, Alice Orr-Ewing, Naomi Battrick and Edwin Flay.
Partygate comes from the makers of Killed by My Debt, The Left Behind and Murdered by My Father and promises to juxtapose the revelry inside the nation’s seat of power with the hardship and sacrifice being experienced across the rest of the country.
Partygate will air on Channel 4
