Meet Mr Khan - self-appointed community leader, future President of the Sparkhill Pakistani Business Association and esteemed expert on everything you never wanted to know about cricket.

This is a man who drinks his tea from a saucer and buys job lots of bog roll from the cash and carry. A man with big dreams and strident opinions: "My fellow business leaders, ask not what your Association can do for you... but what have you done for me lately?"

Like many of us, Mr Khan is struggling to make ends meet - but he's proud of his thriftiness - witness his 1979 suit and ancient yellow Mercedes.

Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters have other ideas.

Mr Khan loves and loathes affable Mosque manager Dave in equal measure. Plus there's Amjad, Shazia's handsome but dim fiancée.
