PEAKY Blinders has brought France to north east Scotland as filming for the show's final season plugs along.

It was confirmed last month that production on series six of the hit BBC drama had begun, after being delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of the show's stars including Cillian Murphy who plays Birmingham gang boss, Tommy Shelby have been filming in the Scottish seaside town of Portsoy in Aberdeenshire.

The latest shots from the set see Portsoy Harbour converted into a French fishing village as the gangsters board a blue fishing boat.

The stars remained rugged up between takes, with many joining in with the crew and wearing face masks as the set sticks to rigid coronavirus regulations.

As filming continued the actors were seen boarding the boat in suits, long coats and brimmed hats.

The boat was then filmed pulling out into the waters and sailing off.

While the plot has yet to be confirmed the sixth season, it seems to involve a jail with Tommy's cousin stuck in the slammer.

Recent pictures showed Murphy on set in Scotland as Tommy Shelby, who engages in a tense altercation with Michael (Finn Cole).

Meanwhile Tommy wore his trademark Peaky Blinders hat and a black winter coat as he approached Michael and a number of prison guards.

After handing a letter to one of the guards, it is passed to Michael who is clearly upset by what he reads and angrily lunges at Tommy, before being restrained by the guards.

As Michael rages at Tommy, he turns and walks away.

Tensions mounted between the pair in season five after Michael returned from America having lost the Shelbys a huge amount of money in the Wall Street crash.

With the help of his new wife Gina, Michael plotted to expand the Shelby business in the States with him at the helm and Tommy and the rest of the clan retiring.

However, Tommy rebuked the proposal and banished the couple from the family business in tense scenes.

It was also confirmed last month that series six will be the show's last, however, creator Steven Knight has revealed Peaky Blinders will "continue in another form", leaving many fans hopeful for a film.

But fans must expect some big changes for the upcoming season as the drama must adhere to government social distancing guidelines.

For Tommy Shelby's actor Cillian Murphy and Aunt Polly star Helen McCrory, they will have to "maintain a two-metre distance from others, and wash their hands regularly."

A release date is yet to be confirmed by the BBC for the next instalment of Peaky Blinders.

Once the series has aired on the BBC, it will be available on Netflix six months later.

Peaky Blinders series 1-5 are available on BBC iPlayer.
