The pair soon begin to fall into a tight friendship as they weave in and out of one another’s lives. However, Emma and Dexter also have to battle their complicated emotions for each other - but will their fates ever align?

This upcoming version of One Day is not the first time that rhe romantic tale has been taken to the screen. In 2011, Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess starred as Emma and Dexter in a film adaptation of the novel.

Netflix’s One Day miniseries will portray the book over the course of 14 episodes. This Is Going To Hurt actress Ambika Mod and The White Lotus star Leo Woodall will be taking on the roles of the two star-crossed lovers.
