BARNSLEY’S own Shaun Dooley has taken on the role of former Prime Minister Harold Wilson in his latest project.

A new drama about Wilson - who was PM twice between 1964 and 1976 - has become the first feature film to be shot inside the House of Commons chamber.

The Ghost of Harold Wilson has been called a ‘tense political thriller’ based on a meeting between Wilson and two journalists during the cold war.

Dooley will take the role of Wilson, and described it as ‘an absolute privilege’.

He added: “To do it inside the chamber is incredible.

“It will be our first day of shooting and my first time playing Harold, what a place to do it.”
