Love Life (S1)From Wednesday 22 May at 21:00
Dreamer Joe bumps into his ex, Lucy, who is heavily pregnant and married. Only Lucy’s not married – she lied to Joe, and the real father has no clue she’s expecting his baby.
Then Joe uncovers a bombshell – the father is Lucy’s ex-boss, Dominic, who is married to the increasingly prickly Penny, and they’ve been trying to have a child for years. Dominic doesn’t know that Lucy is pregnant – until Joe accidentally tells him. And with Penny convincing herself that she and Dominic have as much right to the baby as Lucy does, it becomes a complicated mess.
Love Life is warm drama about how good people come to terms with the trials and pain of love. And a baby.
