This BAFTA-nominated series takes a long, hard look at sex, love, friendship and the loneliness of having too much fun, living in London's zone three but with zone one aspirations.

On her hen night, as she watches Louise stage dive into a crowded dance floor and Karen recreate the Bacardi ad on the club bar, Donna realises with absolute drunken clarity that single girls have more fun.

In this state of inebriation she declares her wedding off. Karl responds by running into the kitchen wall and begging Donna not to leave him. Donna moves in with Karen, and so life begins.

The single girls get into a few scrapes when Louise falls in love with Karen's conquest from the previous night, Donna persuades Karl to set her up with an elite employment agency and Karen gets stalked by Mark.

But the real problem arrives when Louise's mum, Eileen, turns up and announces that she's moving in, after having been dumped by her toy boy.
