21 x 30 minute episodes
Struggling jewellery artist and market stallholder Louise (Beatie Edney) and banker Carla (Holly Aird) have been friends since childhood and remain close despite their very different career choices and financial circumstances.
Attractive, independent Louise is on a constant search for Mr Right – or even Mr Reasonably OK – but she’s not having much success.
Meanwhile, Carla lives with Dave (Nigel Lindsay), a man who respects her, does what she asks in bed and cooks a decent meal.
Even Louise’s menopausal therapist mother, Liz (Charlotte Cornwell) – full of self-importance and endlessly irritating – has just married a sexy Italian hunk called Fab (Robert Langdon Lloyd).
The Channel 4 series ran for 21 episodes over three series.
