The actress – who also plays Carina in Guardians of the Galaxy – takes the lead role in Minx, about an earnest young feminist in 1970s Los Angeles who creates the first erotic magazine for women.

As well as playing Izzy Gould in W1A, Lovibond plays Binky in Mae Martin’s Channel 4 comedy Feel Good and Erica in Trying, Apple TV's first ever British series.
