Set in the south Wales valleys, The Tuckers tells the story of a family of chancers, low on cash but high on spirit - determined to survive through any means necessary. They run a catering business, not always successfully, and a few things on the side, not always legit.

Peggy rules the roost, with Glyn, her son, next in command. His children, Billy and Bobby, are never far from trouble, and Bobby's ex-wife, Natalie lives next door - with Shaks, their young daughter who has an appetite for mayhem.

The family bicker endlessly amongst themselves, but if you cross one Tucker, you cross them all, and you'll think twice about crossing them again (especially Grampa Murphy, who spends most of his time in an outside toilet, armed with a gun).

The series examines the love/hate relationship between members of the clan, ultimately proving that blood is thicker than water.

Woe betide anyone who gets on the wrong side of the Tuckers!
