Miranda Hart returns for a new series of the farcical, affectionate, laugh-out-loud comedy which follows the hapless Miranda's daily quest to fit in and attempt to lead a "normal" life.

There's also the welcome return of Miranda's eccentric mother, Penny, who continues to make embarrassing attempts to marry off her only daughter; plus her old boarding school rival and PR Sloane Tilly and old friend Stevie who runs Miranda's joke shop - mainly by standing back and unhelpfully pointing out where she is going wrong. And she can do with all the support she can get with, among other problems, some serious boy troubles ahead.

This first episode finds Stevie with her work cut out trying to stop Miranda spending all day in her pyjamas with a packet of biscuits for company - since Gary departed for Hong Kong taking with him her chance of any relationship, no matter how unlikely that was.

Eventually, Miranda decides to move on and become the new her - getting fit, losing weight and transforming into the type of woman her nemesis, Tilly, and hard-to-please mother, Penny, would be proud of. First, however, there's lunch with the girls to negotiate - and with the combination of Miranda and a sushi restaurant anything could happen.
