She added a pearl necklace, matching earrings, and wore her mane in curls.

The star sported a pale make-up tone with rouge on her cheeks. In later scenes, she added an elaborate hat with feather detailing.

Matt arrived looking casual, keeping a face mask over his mouth and nose, as per COVID-19 restrictions on set.

He wore a light blue shirt and navy shorts and a baseball cap, brandishing their child's baby seat.

He was seen handing their tot over to his mother, who is presumably still nursing him. Sophie could not stop smiling as she doted on her son and placed a white muslin over her shoulder.

Sophie also stars in Peaky Blinders - and was on set for the production just four weeks after welcoming her child.

'Now I'm just scaring people when I arrive at work #avatar #monthsandmonthsoffilming #wheresmynormalfacegone. HAPPY FRIDAY.'

Talented: Gentleman Jack follows Suranne's character Anne Lister and her love Ann Walker, played by Sophie

The series is set in Yorkshire in 1834 and is based on the real life diaries of English landowner and diarist Lister.

The first series saw the couple torn apart when Ann was taken to Scotland, under threat of being married off by her brother-in-law.

But by the finale, the pair came back together when the philanthropist was called back to Yorkshire to visit her bedridden aunt.

Their reunion took place in a dramatic hilltop moment when Ann revealed she was finally ready to marry Anne.

Suranne often uses her platform to promote LGBT+ equality, so much so that the star was awarded The British LGBT Awards' Celebrity Ally prize during November's ceremony.
