A well-known Suffolk market trader is set to feature on a Channel 5 show presented by Bill Nighy. 

The Channel 5 show Coast and Country features locals living and working across the region – including those harvesting farmland, traditional town traders and those working in the tourist trade. 

Episode one of the latest series will showcase Darren Cox, who is also known as 'Coxy the Vegman'.

Mr Cox is a popular trader at Sudbury market and the episode will follow his day from getting up at the crack of dawn to selling his goods in Market Hill.

Also appearing in the episode is Dani Church's Walberswick ferry crossing, which has been running for more than 700 years. 

Nighy is one of the UK's most famous actors and has starred in hit films such as Love Actually and Pirates of the Caribbean, with his "dulcet tones" sure to add a little "je ne sais quoi" to the series.

Kate Ansell, Channel 5 and Paramount+ commissioning editor, said: "The beautiful landscape of the Norfolk and Suffolk region makes this series a real feast for the eyes."

It is the second show in recent weeks to showcase the county, with TV presenter and comedian Susan Calman heading to Suffolk for her show Summer By The Sea.
