For Cov spotting you won’t go far wrong with Nativity!

Written and directed by Coventrian Debbie Isitt, the movie was shot almost entirely in and around the city.

Keeping your eyes peeled you’ll be able to spot Medieval Spon Street, Bablake School, The Ricoh Arena, Coundon, Stoke Park and Coventry Cathedral.

There are even shots of comic Alan Carr in The Coventry Telegraph newsroom.

Scenes further afield were filmed in Kenilworth.

The film stars Martin Freeman (The Office), Ashley Jensen (Extras and Ugly Betty), Ricky Tomlinson (The Royle Family) and others.

Isitt has revealed that much of the acting was improvised and unscripted.
