Babes In The Wood focuses on dumb-and-ditzy Caralyn, laddish and up-front Leigh, and their flatmate; the slightly quiet and reserved Ruth (Series 1), and snobbish wannabe model Frankie in Series 2.

They are good friends - although sometimes a little reluctantly - with their neighbour, middle-aged divorcee and part-time womaniser Charlie. All four spend much of their time at local cosmopolitan wine bar Bar Coda, managed by ex-public schoolboy Benito.
