Watch new TV series The Full Monty being filmed in Sheffield city centre with star Steve Huison
The Full Monty TV series has now been spotted filming in Sheffield city centre.
Sheffield Star reader Andrew Nurse filmed the scene today (June 2) as dozens of spectators were held back with crowd barriers while filming took place on Surrey Street, near the back of the town hall and the Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s hotel.
The brief scene he saw involved a moped driving across the junction before passers-by were allowed to go on their way.
As he moved off, Andrew spotted one of the stars of the series and the 1997 film, Steve Huison, who plays Lomper. He stopped for a word and got a fist bump from him.
