The class-divide comedy set in the Lake District gets a series. When salt-of-the-earth Neil (Johnny Vegas) and family secure their decrepit holiday home, they feel as if they have made it - until they meet their posh neighbours. Tonight, Neil's problems are compounded by an ambiguous text and an unsightly wifi mast.

If Vegas he has to be in the mainstream I'd rather see him in this than in Benidorm.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 17th April 2018
