Gemma’s (Sarah Alexander) life is ferrying the twins around and dealing with ex Jason (Neil Morrissey) and his Swedish girlfriend.

Press comments

“A Friday night BBC1 sitcom about a hassled singled mum…  Sarah Alexander carries this off with aplomb.” Daily Express, 6th October 2012

“Sarah Alexander hardly puts a foot wrong as the titular divorceé and mother of three… The chemistry between her and her junior beau Billy is completely believable…. likeable and silly… and definitely worth sticking with.” The Times, 13th October 2012

“Witty, has a great cast and is nicely observed.” Heat, 6th October 2012

“You can’t assemble a cast like this without it being watchable… The chemistry between [Sarah] Alexander and [Robert] Sheehan is convincing, [Nathaniel] Parker is a good sport, sending himself up as the school DILF… and nobody does ridiculous better than [Neil] Morrissey – it’s Tony from Men Behaving Badly 20 years on.” The Times, 6th October 2012

“Well written and sweetly played.” The Independent, 6th October 2012

“There’s plenty to laugh about in this star-studded new series.” The Sun, 12th October 2012
