Filming for Dwayne Johnson's Fighting With My Family is currently underway in Norwich.

Stephen Merchant and his production crew have taken over the city centre as scenes for the feature film are shot.

Written and directed by Merchant, Fighting With My Family will focus on the Knight family of wrestlers and their daughter Paige’s journey to WWE fame.

Actress Florence Pugh, who has taken on the role of Paige, was filming some of her final scenes on Monday, along Gentleman’s Walk.

To welcome the young actress to the city , we presented her with a Norwich gift courtesy of Macarons & More in The Royal Arcade.

The 21-year-old was given a tasty treat in the form of 12 assorted macarons, fresh from Dr Tim Kinnaird’s Patisserie.

Pugh commented that she thought the sweet treats looked “great” and planned to share them with the crew, as well as Ricky Knight and his wife Julie Hamer-Bevis (also known as Sweet Saraya) who were on set to watch the filming.

Filming for Fighting With My Family will be taking place at various locations across Norwich on Monday and Tuesday. Production is then set to return to Los Angeles.
