Whether she's fending off female advances towards her loveable plumber husband Dan, stewing over why he thinks her best feature is her bum rather than her boobs, or deciding whether to have potato skins with an extra dollop of sour cream or onion rings with a pot of thousand island dressing (or both) at lunch with the girls - Lisa Johnson loves her life. Even when her smock top is mistaken for a baby bump and when a steamy soak with Dan is interrupted by her mum scrubbing the lav, she wouldn't have it any other way. Welcome to Lisa's world...
Sally Lindsay is Lisa, a 30-something Mancunian who has been married to plumber Dan for ten years. Lisa and Dan live on a smart cul-de-sac in Mount Pleasant, a small suburb to the south of Manchester. Lisa's ever-present parents Sue and Barry live nearby.
At the heart of the show are Lisa and Dan: they love each other, but aren't above a bit of a scrap when the occasion arises. Particularly when their temptress neighbour Bianca offers Dan a slice of her fish pie. But while Lisa is used to fending Bianca on a daily basis, she has no idea that another woman, the recently widowed Kate, is making a play for Dan.
Lisa navigates the highs and lows of life with the help of her best friends and workmates Shelley and Denise, but finds herself struggling with her emotions when she encounters sexy singleton Jack.
Elsewhere, Shelley has her own issues to deal with, when she suspects husband Greg of having a gambling problem. Sue and Barry have no such worries, however: their biggest debates are sparked by what sort of jacket Barry should buy for their coach trip to York.
As we're reunited with the residents of Mount Pleasant in Series 2, everything is rosy for Lisa and Dan. Unfortunately the same can't be said for the rest of the gang; Shelley and Greg are trying to live separate lives, while Denise attempts to keep Fergus away from baby Joshua. Meanwhile, Bianca goes into mum mode when her teenage stepson Gary moves in. However, new friend Kim looks set to lead Lisa astray.
Later in the series, we meet Lisa and Dan's handsome new neighbour Chris, and Dan's father, Charlie. Plus, James Dreyfus gives a scene-stealing turn as Reverend Roger.
New Series 3: A third series will be shown this summer. Nigel Harman and Samantha Womack will be joining the cast in the guise of sexy couple Bradley and Tanya, who move in and inject some glamour into the area.
On joining the cast, Nigel said: "Bradley's a great character, a real wide boy whose clearly got something to hide. He and Tanya are definitely going to stir things up in Mount Pleasant but whether that's for the better or worse you'll have to wait and see."
Samantha adds: "I'm thrilled to be joining the cast of Mount Pleasant, such a popular and well-loved series. I can't wait to get stuck in to playing the part of Tanya who is sure to create some waves in the close."
