Ashley Jensen, star of Ugly Betty and Extras, returns to the BBC in this 60-minute comedy pilot.

Erin Taylor (Jensen), is a high-powered, London-based ad executive who has it all - the successful career, the stunning flat, the gorgeous boyfriend, Mike.

A control-freak, who plans every aspect of her life, nothing takes Erin by surprise - until she discovers Mike in bed with a woman half her age.

She wreaks revenge by abusing his credit card buying, among other things, a run-down farm in Yorkshire. With Mike's scorn ringing in her ears, Erin decides to make a go of it. How hard can it be to run a farm?

Little did she realise she'd be sharing a bed with Olive, an octogenarian sitting tenant; or fending off Clive, the inebriated handyman; or being shouted at by Judith, the horsey neighbour; or embarrassing herself in front of Matt, the dishy vet - not to mention living with a piglet. Erin hadn't imagined just how much she'd have to muck in.
