In his final appearance on The Walking Dead, his character, Rick Grimes, was seen to be put on a helicopter and flown away as the rest of his people were left to fear the worst.

The new show will focus on how the zombie epidemic has hit the UK and will be filmed entirely around Cherhill and Calne. A casting call has gone out to residents in Calne to attend a special 'Zombie Masterclass Day' to be in with a chance of being selected to star in the six episode spin-off.

Mr Lincoln told Calne News: "I feel I left The Walking Dead too soon and so I was thrilled when the producers offered me this opportunity - I am not sure how they are going to explain how Rick made his way from America to Wiltshire in the wake of a Zombie epidemic but they know are audience are not fools, it will tie up any loose ends and open up many opportunities for the future."

If you have what you think it takes to be a 'Walker' you can attend the masterclass to be held at the top of White Horse Hill on Friday 15th April at 12 noon. Fancy dress is actively encouraged.
