Ritchie will be a close friend of Dennis Tanner, who used to represent him when he was at the height of his fame, according to the Daily Star.

The reappearance of his old friend will rekindle Dennis's love for the music industry, and he decides to become Ritchie's manager again. However, this does not go down well with Rita.

Askwith reportedly starts filming on set today with his first scenes being aired later in the autumn.

Askwith was last seen in the 2012 comedy film Run for Your Wife. Watch a trailer below:
