Maxine filming locations: Where was the Channel 5 drama filmed? | The Sun

THE story of Maxine Carr is being brought to life by Channel 5.

The true crime series is through the eyes of former teacher’s assistant Carr, who went to jail for being a false alibi for child murderer Ian Huntley.

Where was Maxine filmed?

In 2002 the world was shocked when evil Ian Huntley killed ten-year-old schoolgirls Holly Wells and ­Jessica Chapman in Soham.

But what also left people reeling, was the fact that Huntley first evaded capture because his girlfriend at the time, Maxine Carr, gave him a false alibi – something she went to jail for.

Despite the fact that Huntley and Maxine's crimes took place in Cambridgeshire, the series was actually filmed in Ireland.

Locals in Bray, Co Wicklow in Ireland were shocked to see how much actress Jemma Carlton resembled Maxine as she shot scenes on the seafront in June 2022.

One witness told The Irish Sun: “It was chilling. They didn’t want to cast someone too high-profile an actress to play Maxine but Jemma perfectly captures her sullen look.”

Actor Scott Reid, who plays vile Ian Huntley, was also spotted filming scenes in the area.
