Pixie Lott is to guest star in 'McDonald and Dodds'.

Huw Kennair Jones, who commissioned the fourth series for ITV alongside Polly Hill, said: "We’re thrilled to be returning to the beautiful city of Bath for more original and inventive crimes for McDonald and Dodds to solve.
"And it’s great to be working with Mammoth Screen, Robert Murphy and Tala and Jason once again on what promises to be another brilliant series."
'Outnumbered' star Claire Skinner will also reprise her role as Chief Superintendent Ormond and Charlie Chambers will be back as DC Goldie. Bhavik C. Pankhania has joined the cast as DC Lee.
In the first film of the fourth series, McDonald and Dodds will team up again to investigate the murder of a middle-aged woman, who is found shot dead in a rented flat.
The killer has removed all clues to her identity, but DNA reveals she went missing over 35 years ago.
