What will happen in Scarborough?
The official BBC synopsis for the comedy reads: “Mike and Karen are nearly-40-somethings that are giving their relationship another go, five years after they split.
“The pair were always meant to be together, but Mike’s ambition to become a professional entertainer meant that he was never at home.
“Now in his late 30’s, Mike has realised what’s actually important to him – he’s given up life on the road to come back to Scarborough and give their relationship another go.
“Karen truly loves Mike, but she ended their relationship first time around as she realised what she wanted was stability and that wasn’t something Mike could offer.
“Her life in Scarborough is doing a job that she loves and making sure her mum is OK.
“Karen works at Geraldine’s, a local hair salon where the elderly clientele are always keen to share the latest gossip – if they’re not talking about it in Geraldine’s then it’s not worth talking about.
“The salon is the very heart of the community – but as the series unfolds is that heart about to be ripped out by unscrupulous local businessman Tony Peroni (Jake Canuso)?
“Between Geraldine’s and the local pub/karaoke hot spot, The Good Ship, there’s never a dull day in town.
“But will the course of true love run smoothly for the couple the second time around, or will the trials and tribulations of their lives get in the way?”
Scarborough starts tonight at 9:30pm on BBC One.
