'The warmth and affection that HE Bates has generated through his books is so uplifting and I cannot wait to be part of the Larkin family. It’ll be a hoot!'

The new six-part series will be shown on ITV but this time it is called The Larkins and will be penned by The Durrells writer Simon Nye.

Set in the Kent countryside, the family drama follows the lives of The Larkins and their six children as they navigate their idyllic life while dealing with threats from government officials.

A stint selling counterfeit jewelry on the streets led to a fateful meeting with director Guy Ritchie. Statham, who had only previously appeared in video shorts, was cast in Ritchie’s popular 1998 film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels at the age of 31, and his path to career stardom was sealed.

It was announced earlier this month that Bridgerton star Sabrina will play Pop Larkin's daughter Mariette Larkin in the new TV version of HE Bates’ novels.

The role was responsible for launching the career of Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, 51, who portrayed Mariette in the original ITV series.

A source said: 'Their adventures [in Breaking Dad] gained around 5 million viewers an episode, and producers hope to bring some of that audience to The Larkins.

'Pairing Bradley and Barney adds to the growing anticipation for this reinvention of a show which holds a special place in the hearts of a generation of viewers.'

Ly, 40, is waiting to be hired for the day to transport iron rods or bags of cement on his horse-drawn cart. "Sometimes I wait all day," he said, prayer beads dangling from his neck. Hailing from a farming region about a hundred miles (160 kilometres) south of the seaside capital, Ly is one of a growing number of rural-dwellers who come to Dakar looking for work with their horses in tow.
