Frances and her best friend/ex-girlfriend Bobbi, who will be played by Sasha Lane, start to spend a long time with Melissa, played by Jemima Kirke, and her husband Nick - played by Joe.

Nick and Frances go on to have a secret affair with each other, which will test the relationships within the group.

It was announced in May last year that Conversations With Friends would be turning into a TV adaptation, after Sally Rooney’s novel-turned-series, Normal People, gained instant international popularity.

Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones portrayed Connell and Marianne as they played each other’s first love in the Irish coming-of-age series.

Similarly, Conversations With Friends will be set in Dublin and is set to be released at some point next year on BBC Three and Hulu.

If Normal People's success is anything to go by, we're sure Conversations With Friends is set to take the world by storm!
