There will be a distinct lack of tights on the set of the BBC's forthcoming 15th century period drama, The White Queen.
"These days tights are associated with Robin Hood movies and bad jokes," Nic Ede, costume designer, told the Daily Mail.
Production company, Company Pictures, hopes that by switching to actors in trousers instead of tights, the series will be able to lose any stigma associated with the costumes.
It has also been revealed that the actors have had their faces 'toned down' to create a more realistic perception of how they would have appeared.
The 10-part drama is based upon the first book in Philippa Gregory's bestselling historical novel series, The Cousin's War.
Starring Rebecca Ferguson and Max Irons, the series follows the life of Edward IV and his queen consort Elizabeth Woodville during the War of the Roses between the Houses of Lancaster and York.
