Actresses Katherine Kelly and Molly Windsor head the Cheat ITV drama cast list, playing the roles of university lecturer Leah Dale and student Rose Vaughan respectively.
Episode 1 of the four-part new series premieres in the UK at 9:00 pm on Monday 11 March, 2019, with the next three episodes airing that same week on consecutive nights. The series plot sees Leah call out final year student Rose when she hands in a suspiciously high-grade essay, but the youngster doesn’t respond well to the accusation and quickly seeks revenge. But as we see early in the first episode, Leah is, in fact, guilty of some cheating of her own. From the very start, Cheat also teases viewers of dramatic events to come with Breaking Bad-style flash forwards.
