Further details

In Series 1, after stumbling upon a gangland shooting, flatmates Leanne and Rhona entered the Witness Protection programme... but unbeknownst to them, the criminal gang were tracking them down.

When they learn that a corrupt cop has leaked their safe house location the girls have no choice but to go on the run. But before they've even managed to get out the door they've got two big problems: hit-man Benny is moments away and they've just accidentally shot their overbearing neighbour Jackie.

Trapped and unable to trust the police, they'll have to solve this dilemma on their own. Can Leanne's dubious acting skills help them to make an escape before their assailant closes in?
