The new 6 part series returns viewers back into the boisterous world of Freddie Thornhill and Stuart Bixby as we follow more of their adventures and mishaps.

The loving (and bickering) couple of over 50 years soon discover it's all change amongst their close circle of friends. Violet has married a mystery man who now seems to have gone AWOL. Ash is all loved up with new girlfriend Jess. And ditzy Penelope and no nonsense Mason continue to be baffled by everyone around them.

Throughout the new series we'll see our family of friends try ballroom dancing, discover what the inside of a gym looks like and try sushi for the very first time.

In the opening episode, Violet panics when her wealthy sister Lillian - whom she has not seen in years - announces a visit.

Worried that Lillian will discover the truth about her circumstances, Violet and friends set in motion an elaborate plan to save her from humiliation.

Meanwhile, Ash is keen to introduce the group to his new girlfriend, Jess - but he is in for a surprise.
