Everyone's favourite supermarket is back open for business and, shaking up the shop floor, a few fresh faces have been added to the mix.

Leading the way is BAFTA Award winner Miriam Margolyes, who is set to stir up trouble as Colin's seemingly sweet nan Rose. She's joined by Stephen Tompkinson as pharmacist-cum-fantasist Brian, comic Aisling Bea, playing the dizzy daughter of the bigwig who owns Valco, and Samuel Anderson as the store's new assistant manager.

Last but by no means least is former Britain's Got Talent finalist Jack Carroll, who fine-tunes his sarcasm skills as school leaver Harry.

Don't worry, Trollied faithful, most of the regulars are still hanging about, from branch manager Gavin to Neville, the world's unluckiest man.

The old timers have got some adjusting to do in this first fix from series four as they get to know a couple of the newbies.

Shelf stacker Colin is shocked to see his gran strolling up the aisle, and it's not long before she's meddling in management matters and his relationship with girlfriend Lisa - the OAP isn't a fan.

It's onwards and upwards, though, for Margaret, sorry, 'Nurse Margaret' as she swaps the delicatessen counter for the pharmacy.
