What's happening in the new series?


  • Adam is back on the singles market; but for once in his life he’s not finding any takers – has he finally lost his mojo?


  • Pete on the other hand appears to have found his and with mature student Jenny top of the class, the Giffords are in a good place, aren't they?


  • As the Marsden's twin daughters, Ellie and Olivia turn eighteen, fiercely independent Karen is left wondering whether her business will be enough to fulfil her in her later years.


  • Karen's ex-husband, David looks set to become a kept man, if his pride will let him.
