The film follows the legend of a village's Christmas candle and also stars Samantha Barks from Les Misérables.

Boyle said of the experience: "I can't believe I'm making a film. I'm very excited to be a part of The Christmas Candle.

"Everyone on set is a delight to work with and it's a fantastic experience to be part of the team.

"I'm really enjoying getting dressed in the period costumes and stepping back in time and although it's very cold filming on location, I'm wearing long johns under my bustle."

Barks, a runner-up on BBC show I'd Do Anything, said: "Having just landed from the Academy Awards I had an hour to unpack and repack and get to set.

"I'm very excited to be part of The Christmas Candle and I'm loving every second."
