According To Bex stars Jessica Hynes (then Stevenson) as Bex Atwell, a secretary who's stuck in an 'almost' world - almost in a relationship, almost in a good job, almost a size 10/12.

Bex is trying to figure out what a smart woman is supposed to do in a world where men behave like... men, but the more she discovers the more infuriating they become!

Bex's boss Charles doesn't acknowledge relationship boundaries; her on/off boyfriend Ryan is worried that she's "trying to corral his seed"; and her womanising father, Jack, has regressed into one of the lads.

With the help of her acerbic friend Chris and her subversive office mate Jan, Bex tries to work out what men are all about and why women even bother to try working them out in the first place.
