Set in Valco, a fictional supermarket in the north-west of England, Trollied puts a comic twist on one of our most familiar surroundings.
Series One saw acting deputy manager Julie struggling to assert her authority over her staff, and equally fail to impress manager Gavin, upon whom she has quite something of a crush.
On the meat counter, butcher Andy - to whom chops and mince are nearer a religion than a foodstuff - and his young, bored apprentice Kieran, found Julie's significant lack of people skills a constant source of amusement.
At the checkout, fed-up Katie dreams of going travelling, but longs for days at work so she may be near Kieran; whilst new employee Margaret, a product of Valco's older person recruitment scheme, is a constant source of irritation to Julie and far from a natural on the tills.
In Series Two, a promotion for Gavin to head office opens the way for formidable new store manager Lorraine Chain. She has big plans to shake up Valco and, no doubt, the neuroses-riddled Julie. Back in meats, Andy's getting stick - not of the crusty French kind - from fiesty but pint-sized baker Sharon; and the arrival of former business executive Neville on the kiosk could prove interesting...
