Ex tour manager Floyd (Charles Dance) is used to mingling with the stars. Now in retirement, he is still as rock 'n' roll as ever.

Floyd is a flamboyant, free spirited, party goer. His rather uptight ballet teacher daughter Becky (Amelia Bullmore) and her palliative care consultant husband Jack (Hugo Speer) certainly have their work cut out with this firecracker, especially when their young teenage daughter Becky wants to attend a music festival.

Notes

Previously known as Bad Grandad.
