BBC drama Keeping Faith is officially back on our screens for season two, after season one had a hit run on Welsh TV and set unprecedented records on BBC iPlayer. The eight-part series, based on Jodi Picoult’s bestselling book of the same name, follows the journey lawyer, wife and mother Faith Howells after her husband’s sudden disappearance – and the nation was hooked from the moment they pressed play.
Leading actress Eve Myles may have stolen the show with her performance, but fans will know that there’s also another, possibly even bigger star on screen – the Keeping Faith yellow coat.

As the show’s popularity grew, viewers across social media started raving about the brightly coloured rain jacket, with the garment becoming so well-known that someone even built it its own Twitter account, under the name Faith’s Yellow Rain Coat, with more than 600 followers.
‘Now browsing the internet for a #keepingfaith style yellow coat, but will it clash with ginger hair? 😕 @TeamEveMyles,’ wrote one viewer, whilst another posted: ‘@TeamEveMyles hope all the clothes shops have got lots of yellow coats in stock ready for the #KeepingFaith fans 😉😉’.
If you’re as obsessed as the rest of the country, you may also have found yourself wondering where to buy the now iconic Keeping Faith yellow coat. Well, we’ve got the answer – it’s from Joules, and it’ll cost you less than £100.
The 100 per cent waterproof jacket is part of the brand’s Right as Rain collection, and boasts a soft jersey lining to keep you cosy on cooler days. It’s available online in sizes 6-20, and if the antique gold colour way isn’t your thing, it also comes in a red option which is currently on sale for just £44.95.
Shoppers who’ve already purchased have left a host of positive reviews on the Joules website, with one writing: ‘What a great jacket, colour is lovely. Great for rain but also thick enough for a cooler day to give you an extra layer.’
‘I love the colour of my gold waterproof jacket,’ a second agreed. ‘Enough to brighten the most dull of days and right on trend!’
