Agatha Christie fans, we have good news for you.

In the tradition of her works being adapted for BBC One, we have the latest installment – and it's a great one.

The Pale Horse will be hitting your television screens later this year.

So what is the storyline?

Based on the 1961 novel, the plot centres on a mysterious list of names is found in the shoe of a dead woman.

One of the names on the list is Mark Easterbrook, who begins an investigation into how and why his name came to be there and is drawn to The Pale Horse, which is the home of three rumoured witches in the tiny village of Much Deeping.

It all sounds quite spooky – and that is because it is one of the creepier Christie works.

There are rumours that the witches can get rid of rich relatives with the use of the dark arts – but Mark isn't so sure.

The book was adapted for TV  in 2010 with Julia McKenzie starring as iconic sleuth Ms. Marple. 

There are no cast announcements so far for Phelps' version but it will be directed by Leonora Lonsdale and produced by Ado Yoshizaki Cassuto.

This is the fourth Christie book Sarah has tackled from page to screen – the first three being And Then There Were None, The Witness For The Prosecution and Ordeal By Innocence.

Sarah said ''Written in 1961, against the backdrop of the Eichmann Trial, the escalation of the Cold War and Vietnam, The Pale Horse is a shivery, paranoid story about superstition, love gone wrong, guilt and grief.''

She continued, ''It’s about what we’re capable of when we’re desperate and what we believe when all the lights go out and we’re alone in the dark.”

We are huge fans of a good murder mystery so we can't wait.

Rupert Grint has spoken about his net worth, and it's fair to say we're more than a bit jealous.

The former Ron Weasley was interviewed by The Radio Timesand his funds happened to come up in the conversation.

Naturally, everyone has something to say about it, seeing as his worth in 2016 was estimated to be a whopping €50 million, less than half of Daniel Radcliffe's estimated worth.

He told the publication that he tries not to pay much attention to his financial needs, but says he is "comfortable". Well for some isn't it?

Figures seem to go way over his head, based on these quotes;

"I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess."

"It doesn't really motivate me too much. It makes you comfortable, that's the good thing about it, I think. I'm glad it's there but I'm not really that focused on it."

We'd be running around Brown Thomas spending an absolute fortune on nonsensical items which we totally don't need… but each to their own, I guess?

The actor has taken on roles since Harry Potter wrapped up in 2011, starring in Sick Note on Sky One, and the Snatch reboot.

He will also star in The BBC production of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders alongside John Malkovich as Hercule Poirot.

Mr Weasley's down-to-earth spending habits appear to parallel with Harry and Hermione's.

Daniel Radcliffe told the Belfast Telegraph back in 2016 that he pretty much leaves his $100 million fortune alone.

"I'm very grateful for it, because having money means you don't have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom, career-wise," he said.

Grint also spoke about his struggle with the Harry Potter phenomenon's fame; "Sometimes you just want to go to B&Q." Do you, though? It's fairly grim.

The first thing he did in 2011 after hanging up his cloak and wand was get his tonsils removed;

"It was too much recovery time and there was the fear that it would change my voice."

Well Rupert, no one can say that you're not a normal lad. Too normal, in fact.
