RESIDENTS on a Holborn estate have been told it’s going to look like Christmas all over again when film crews shoot scenes for a new movie there later this month.

Tenants and leaseholders on the Bourne estate have been advised that Last Christmas, an upcoming rom-com co-written by West Hampstead actress Emma Thompson, will be partly set in two of the blocks on the estate and nearby Leather Lane.

Festive decorations will be hung to make it look as if it is still Dec­ember. Emilia Clarke, who starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story, is due to play the lead role.

Filming of other scenes began in November.
