Series 1, Episode 1

Mae and George's whirlwind romance begins with a bang after they meet at The Gag Bin comedy club. But will a beautiful straight girl really fall for a lesbian who looks like a kernel of corn?

Further details

Stand-up comedian Mae is stuck in a rut: she's single, in recovery from a drug addiction and sleeping on a friend's sofa. The jokes may be landing, but her life isn't. When she meets the magnetic but previously heterosexual George, it doesn't seem possible that George could be interested in her: George is like Princess Diana, while Mae resembles a kernel of corn... Nevertheless, the pair embark on a whirlwind romance, moving in together and triggering events that will change both their lives forever.
