Zero Chill, which follows the fortunes of an ice hockey team and ice dancing team forced to share a rink, is being filmed at several locations across the city – and these pictures show how Ice Sheffield has been transformed into the ‘H Arena’ – home of the fictional Hammers for the new show.

Darren Gill managed to grab the pictures which show how the venue has been given a new look for the ‘high end teen drama.’

The show is being produced by Lime Pictures, maker of the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks and reality shows including The Only Way is Essex and Geordie Shore.

The programme’s cast includes former Hollyoaks and Transformers: The Last Knight actor Christina Tam.

The Star reported in December how filming was taking place on Victoria Road in Broomhill.

And residents of the Park Hill flats will get a sneak preview today with the end of South Street, overlooking Sheffield Amphitheatre, being used for filming between 4pm and 7pm today.

Lime Pictures said access via South Street would be maintained for residents and businesses within Park Hill ‘as and when it’s safe for us to do so' but residents and staff may be politely asked to wait for a few minutes on the day.

“We understand that we are guests in your area and we will do our utmost to minimise any disruption to residents and businesses when we can,” the letter to residents said.

It is not yet known when Zero Chill is likely to hit screens, and Lime Pictures declined to comment when approached by The Star.

The city’s latest starring role comes after upcoming Hollywood movie Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and starring Richard E Grant was filmed in Sheffield last year while the city has also been given worldwide exposure, featuring in several episodes of long-running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who.

Episodes in the last series featured Park Hill flats and Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane.
