Sometimes life just isn't fair. For Josh, sometimes feels like always.

Dumped by his fiancée, Josh is forced to return to his old flat-share with Owen, the most romantic and lyrical Welshman since records began (and that includes Tom Jones) and Kate, who spends her life pursuing every trend from A to Zumba.

Frustrated, single and reliably grumpy, Josh feels completely stuck in his life with Kate and Owen, and things only go from bad to worse. From a disastrous pool party, via public humiliation at his own birthday, to being toyed with by his high school crush, this baby faced Victor Meldrew routinely fails to be left alone to find the quiet life he craves.

Meanwhile, Josh's flatmate - and childhood best friend - Kate, finds life equally difficult. An enforced holiday to Clacton-on-Sea reveals a rather unpleasant competitive streak, and a disastrous date leads Kate to discover a hugely embarrassing reputation she gained at university.

Owen, however, continues to drift along happy as Larry. He is a bundle of charm, with a never-ending fountain of anecdotes about nights spent with minor celebrities, from meeting Tasmin Archer in fancy dress to watching Shaggy wee in a pool.

As different as the trio are, they all feel equally tormented by their strange, fusty landlord Geoff, as he inflicts himself upon their lives at every turn. Geoff is a man of many ideas and all of them are bad.
