Robson Green would love to direct a film version of 'Grantchester'.

The 57-year-old actor portrays DI Geordie Keating in the ITV drama series, and while he would love to take the show to the big screen, he isn't keen to helm an episode of the programme.

He said: "In my view it’s a young person’s game."

As well as his acting, Robson is known for being one half of singing duo Robson Jerome alongside Jerome Flynn, with the pair landing several number one singles in the 1990s.

And Robson would love to team up with the 'Game of Thrones' star again in an episode of 'Grantchester'.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Jerome would be great to have in 'Grantchester', he’s a fantastic actor."

His comments come after Robson admitted in 2017 that he and Jerome previously turned down a £1 million offer to resurrect their pop career.

After co-starring in TV series 'Soldier Soldier', Simon Cowell signed the pair to a record deal in the 1990s and they sold seven million albums before retiring from the music business.

However, after the pair reunited for Robson's ITV series 'Tales From The Coast', in January 2017, they were offered a huge new record deal but neither of them were keen to take up music again.

Speaking in April 2017, Robson said: "Because of that meeting on TV we had non-stop phone calls from record companies, and I'm talking serious amounts of money, for a reunion.

"But we said: 'No.' It's a phase we went through. The highlight of our music was when we stopped."
