Stephen Tompkinson as Harry Kavanagh

Harry Kavanagh (Stephen Tompkinson)

Poor old Harry Kavanagh's had a huge thing for Bianca Minola for years - so when she leaves him for sexy young Italian Lucentio, he's heartbroken. He's got one last hope to cling onto - her comment that she'll only get married when her sister Kate does.

When his bonkers old mate Petruchio turns up out of the blue looking for a rich wife, does it mean Harry's luck has finally changed?
