This 90s throwback is ageing gracefully, with midlife crises, perfect kitchens and teenage pregnancies thrown into the mix. Adam (James Nesbitt) is off on a team-building exercise and his eyebrows have been flirting with a cheeky colleague for weeks. What will happen when he spends the night away from Tina? Elsewhere, Karen (Hermione Norris) is buckling under the pressure of her complicated work and home life, despite hapless ex David's offer of help.
