Teasing viewers with what’s to come in the new offering, Joanne can be seen looking thoughtful in the first look image.
Wearing what could be a dressing gown in a bedroom, a bandage is on her arm, covering up a wound.
Joanne, 40, stars as the titular character in the new ITV drama produced by award-winning production company Two Brothers Pictures (The Missing, Fleabag, Liar).
Written by Harry and Jack Williams, it follows the story of Angela who appears to be living a perfect life with her hard-working husband and two sons, but who is instead trapped in a cycle of domestic abuse.
