Eagle-eyed residents may have spotted cameras rolling at the former Shredded Wheat factory in Broadwater Road, where Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's new show Truth Seekers is being filmed.

It is a comedy-horror series starring the pair as paranormal investigators, who team up to uncover and film paranormal sightings across the UK.

They use ghost-detecting gadgets to scour haunted churches, underground bunkers, abandoned hospitals - and, evidently, former Shredded Wheat factories.

The two actors have previously collaborated on several films also shot in WGC, including Hot Fuzz and The World's End.

For the latter, pubs The Peartree, The Parkway Bar - now Turkish restaurant Misya -, The Doctor's Tonic and The Cork - now The Two Willows - were all used.

The first season of Truth Seekers, which will be eight episodes long and directed by Jim Field Smith, is expected to be released next year.
