On Sunday, BBC Two will be delighting viewers by showing the 2005 re-imagining of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.

If you have never seen this absolute classic, the plot centres around Mr and Mrs Bennett and their five daughters, which the couple are eager to marry off to wealthy bachelors. However, their second eldest, Elizabeth (played by Keira Knightley), can think of nothing worse than marrying a man she does not love.

When the eligible and mysterious Mr Darcy (played by Matthew Macfadyen) arrives into town, Elizabeth is immediately disgusted by his rudeness and moody glares.

As these films always go, the pair continue to cross paths during social occasions, but Elizabeth is later shocked when Darcy makes an unexpected confession to her. Has Elizabeth been right about him all along, or has she allowed her first impressions of him to cloud her judgement?

Well, you’ll just have to watch and find out! So, grab the popcorn and lots of cosy blankets, and enjoy this stunning period romance.

Pride & Prejudice airs this Sunday (December 10) on BBC Two at 6pm.
