Lesbian sex, seduction, betrayal and heartbreak are coming to BBC Three next month - yes we can now confirm that Lip Service will be on your screens in October.

We can't wait here at BBC Three and it seems you're pretty excited too. Loads of you have been asking about it on our Facebook page and Twitter.

Lip Service follows the sex lives and dramatic love affairs of three twenty-something lesbians living in Glasgow. So we're talking hot, steamy scenes, loads of melodrama and some brilliantly funny bits as well.

So now you know that Lip Service starts in October - I think it's time you met the characters:

FRANKIE
Occasionally bisexual, photographer Frankie generally only uses men for sex but falls in love with women. Frankie's the one with commitment issues. Her return from New York isn't great news for everyone and proves quite a shock for her former lover Cat...

    I am throughly enjoying lip service the lesbian drama set in Glasgow.

    It is funny and sad and i love the relationship between Cat and Sam although i fear that Cat will be a complete fool and go back with Frankie!!

    A bad mistake i think!!

    I know, it is only a story.

    it is great to see a briitsh lesbian soap and it is suited well to glasgow.

    sadie and Frankie are two dykes behaving badly and Jay is repulsive!!

    He can't be monogamous for one second and is not a very nice character but then we need baddies ai suppose to balance it all out otherwise it would be boring!!

    I hope we can have more lesbian dram of quality as there is nothing for us and as i pay my tv licence it would be nice to see more quality lesbian drama.

    Sam and Tess are the best characters. Cat needs her brains testing if she gives up Sam!!

    Loving it!!
