Further details

Deb invites new boyfriend Dev home to meet her daughters Billie and Josie, whilst desperately trying to suppress how troubled they are. Josie's face isn't doing a very good job of covering up how depressed she is, so Deb sets out to teach her how fulfilling capitalism can be, by taking her shopping. Billie spots the love of her life Nicky with a new girl, so decides to win him back with a significant change to her appearance and discovers just how much love hurts.

Josie is disillusioned with the thought of work and in her despair, says far too much to her colleague - particularly about her mum's sex life.

Home bleaching kits are not for the faint of heart, but beauty is pain according to Josie and her sister, Billie, who is more than just a little 'hot-headed' in all senses of the phrase.

Featuring: Paul Bazely (Dev), Louise Brealey (Deb), Lizzie Davidson (Billie) & Kat Sadler (Josie).
