The series follow them juggling the pressures of family, husbands and making ends meet, striving for happiness and fulfillment. A chance encounter between Steph (Sophie Rundle) and Nita (Angela Griffin) kick starts a transformation as they grasp the opportunity to become Ann Summers party organisers.

This a lighthearted and easy watching British TV series. There is humour, drama and some great 1980’s music. Also the acting is good from the cast.
