Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps

BBC Three and BBC Two sitcom about a group of 20-somethings. 79 episodes (9 series), 2001 - 2011. Stars Natalie Casey, Will Mellor, Sheridan Smith, Kathryn Drysdale and others.

Series 8, Episode 5 - D.I.V.O.R.C.E

Donna and Gaz have decided to get divorced, a decision that takes them down memory lane.

Further details

Looking back at their relationship through a series of fantasies and flashbacks, Donna and Gaz recall the first time they met, at the age of five, and also the first time they slept together.

They also imagine how life might be without one another: Donna looks forward to how she and Louise will be as old ladies while Gaz imagines how fat he may have been if they'd never met. All this reminiscing makes the pair wonder whether they have made the right decision.
