When the going gets tough, the mums get tougher! May Contain Nuts is a two-part comedy drama which follows the bullying, back-stabbing, competing and cheating undertaken by pushy parents who are trying to get their kids into the best schools.
Alice and David Chaplin have moved with their three young children to a safe, leafy, gated community in South West London. There they meet other parents Ffion, Philip and Sarah. They're soon catapulted into a world where parental anxiety about education has reached fever pitch and where people will stop at nothing to ensure their children get a place at 'the best' school.
Our Review: The general consensus was that this comedy drama started well, but the quality significantly dipped in the second episode.
