Celebrities hoping to be cast in the hit TV show Peaky Blinders have been warned by its creator they will only get a part if they’re any good.

‘We get a lot of people who get in touch and want to take part,’ said Steven Knight, ahead of tonight’s fifth season finale on BBC One.

‘There’s Brad Pitt. Snoop Dogg has been in touch. A$AP Rocky, too. I think in series six we will just open the door a little to get some celebrity actors in.

‘The main thing is they have to be good. 

I always find it difficult when the audience knows a person from somewhere else and they just drop in.’

The series, which has won a clutch of Baftas, charts the lives of the ruthless Shelby family, a criminal gang who control the streets of Small Heath, Birmingham, after the First World War.

The show began six years ago but has rocketed in popularity thanks to Netflix streaming it in 183 countries.

Tonight’s episode sees the Shelbys take on Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin), and rival gang the Billy Boys.
