Catherine Tate returns with her well-loved character, Nan, for for sitcom episodes.

Pilot: Whilst Jamie, Nan's grandson is away in Africa doing voluntary work, a young girl, Alice has been allocated to Nan by the "Young and Old Buddy-Up Foundation" to keep her company and cheer her up.

Alice soon discovers that Nan's kitchen tap is broken and so accompanies her to the council office to arrange to get it fixed. Unfortunately, Nan, in her usual style, causes mayhem and upset at the offices, ending up with her being given a community service order in the local hospital.

Jamie, meanwhile, who is Skypeing regularly from Africa, is concerned when he sees Nan in hospital, thinking she's seriously ill. At the same time, new neighbours have moved in across the corridor and Nan gets involved in preparations for their family wedding party.

2015 Specials: Nan's aggressive attitude to harmless pensioners finally gets her into trouble with the police; and then later she battles a housing development company.
