Production crews spent Monday in Norwich, taking over Gentleman’s Walk and St James’ Hill.

Tuesday morning saw filming recommence at Mousehold Heath, and later the crew will be heading to Great Yarmouth Seafront.

It is believed they will be filming in the Retroskate area between 4-11pm.

Written and directed by Stephen Merchant, Fighting With My Family, will focus on the Knight family of professional wrestlers from Norwich and their daughter Paige’s unlikely rise to stardom.

Members of the Knight family, including Ricky Knight, Julia Hamer-Bevis and Zak Knight will be on set Tuesday evening.

Julia Hamer-Bevis, also known as Sweet Saraya, watched filming yesterday and said she was “very happy” with how everything was shaping up.

In a post on Facebook she added: “Down on set, cried a little bit but proud of the family and everyone involved in the movie.”

Made by Seven Buck Productions With WWE Studios and Film 4, Fighting With My Family is scheduled for cinematic release in 2018.
