The Amelia Gething Complex centre-stages YouTube sensation Amelia Gething in this female-led sitcom/sketch show hybrid that harnesses her aspirational style and surreal humour.

In this series Amelia lives in a flat in Pepperpot Drive with her two best friends, Vinnie and Poppy. It's a home like any other - except that anything can happen. Interspersing the madcap antics in the flat, the show spins off into other sketches in the outside world and breaks the fourth wall by directly engaging the audience.

Across the series, Amelia encounters a passive-aggressive lift; Poppy and Amelia accidentally break the space-time continuum; Wallace falls victim to a sarcasm epidemic; and Amelia has a gruesome incident with a piƱata.

An anarchic vibe with high energy laughs, the series is aimed at teens aged 13 upwards.
