Just when you think it can't get any worse... it does!

Meet Howard and Mel, a seemingly-perfect couple. They're made for each other, but face a constant uphill battle to prove this to their friends and family. Covering classic family scenarios, such as weddings, babies and Christmas; Howard and Mel's eagerness to please has hilarious and cringe-worthy consequences...

In Series 1, Howard goes from one disaster to another as he prepares to get married to Mel. In the second series, newly married Howard and Mel have another disastrous week. In the third series, three festive specials, Howard has the Christmas from hell.
