In the Club will explore the impact of a new baby on a modern family, following six very different couples who bond at the local Parent Craft class.

"Having given birth as a teenager I know how life-changing it is," said Mellor. "Birth is the ultimate creation; it changes you and your relationships forever.

"I'm delighted to be writing for BBC One again. Both [Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning] Ben Stephenson and [BBC Head of Independent Drama] Polly Hill instinctively understand my work. They encourage and trust me to deliver; as a dramatist you couldn't ask for anything more and for that I'm eternally grateful."

Mellor's past television credits include the series Band of Gold, Fat Friends and A Passionate Woman.

Her most recent effort - BBC One drama The Syndicate - has been remade by US network ABC as the new series Lucky 7.

In the Club - a six-part series - will be shot in the North of England.
