Film crews spotted at the Lakeside North Harbour car park in Cosham on May 12, 2022

Crew members at the Lakeside site told The News the project was titled My Mother’s Wedding – although codenames or working titles are commonly used in film and television while work is underway.

In response to a query by The News, a Royal Navy spokeswoman said: ‘For commercial reasons it would be inappropriate to comment.’

Earlier this year film crews and movie star Tom Hardy were spotted in the New Forest for a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations.
