ITV has said that the third series of its Jeremy Piven-starring period drama Mr Selfridge will be filmed this year, with fans promised "surprises".

Season three will consist of 10 episodes.

ITV Studios Executive Producer Kate Lewis said: "We have some surprises in store for an audience in this third series. You only have to walk down Oxford Street today to know that Selfridges department store continued to be successful, but for its founder, Harry Selfridge, things were very different."

Lewis added: "His story was a rollercoaster ride that ended rather tragically. We pick up series three in 1919, the point at which his life really begins to unravel."
