MOO’S this filming their new series in St Helens?

Comic superstar Johnny Vegas was in Rainford on Saturday night shooting the pilot for his new show, A Saucer Full of Secrets.

Johnny was tight-lipped about the contents of the project.

The funnyman was at Siding Lane Country Park recording scenes where he was talking to a cow – before realising an alien spacecraft is approaching over the treetops. The scene involved a huge mobile platform that projected the alien ‘landing lights’ down onto the park’s grassed area.

Production company Baby Cow, which includes comedian Steve Coogan among its directors, hope the pilot could eventually develop into a series.

n Johnny’s radio drama Interiors goes out on tomorrow on Radio Four.
