Simon Peel and Oliver Smallbridge are two men with a lot in common. Not only are they both in the antiques trade, but they have adjacent shops, and even their homes are side-by-side. Both are one-parent family men and neither will stop at anything to get the better of the other. The pair's rivalry doesn't stop their offspring from falling in love and getting married though!
