UK women are less likely than ever to find a long-term boyfriend and one in four will never marry. A disturbing statistic? Not as disturbing as it was in the 1660s: Meet Pauline Pepys, a woman with a busy brother, an awful best friend and a lovelorn love life.

London is a terrifying place to be single with a best friend who's your worst enemy, and living with your brother and his wife who hates you. Worst of all, it's 1660 and there's a plague.
