Phil Bodley comments to-camera as he tries to engineer his newly-divorced parents, Georgie and Gerry, back together. The latter, his father, had an affair with "sex godess" Beryl Marston, and although the divorce has only just been finalised he is keen to win Georgie back.

She isn't sure what she wants, and struggles to cope with being a newly-single mother of two and running her own business, a small shop - albeit with the help of gay best friend Harvey.
