Two Pints follows the lives and loves of five friends. In Series 1, Donna and Gaz are just starting off their relationship while Janet and Jonny seem to have a solid romance. Meanwhile, the temperamental Louise is somewhat unlucky in love. The friends meet at the local pub to chat about sex, work and life.
The show follows the couples splitting up, getting back together, getting married, having babies - and even being ripped apart by death.
At the end of each series viewers are presented with a cliff-hanger that leaves it in the air as to whether the various couples will stay together.
Numerous characters made their way in and out of Runcorn over the years. Those to leave included Janet, Donna, and Jonny. Newcomers included barman Tim, his sister Cassie, and wannabe footballer Billy.
Other characters to have left include Gaz's half-brother Munch, Louise's Australian boyfriend David and Donna's incorrigible mother, Flo.
