ITV’s new thriller Trauma is starting tonight, and it’s set to be pretty intense.

The show’s two main actors, Adrian Lester and John Simm, appeared on This Morning on Monday to talk about the drama, and suffice to say, it’s probably not for the faint of heart.

It follows Simm’s character Dan Bowker after his son dies under trauma surgeon Jon Allerton’s watch, played by Lester.

And considering Dan’s in a pretty dark place throughout the three-part drama having lost his son unexpectedly, it’s perhaps not surprising that actor John used his own personal experience to help connect to his character’s deep sense of loss.

During their talk with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, Eamonn pointed out: ‘You have a lad the same age in real life as your character has.’
