NEW
Sexy, provocative and seductive, BBC Three drama Lip Service returns to the bars and clubs of Glasgow’s Merchant City to follow the lives of a group of 20-something lesbians.

After a loved-up month on holiday in South America, Cat and Sam arrive back in Glasgow with a colossal bump. Having run away from her relationship with first love Frankie, Cat knows she must now face the music.

It looks like Tess finally has it all: her first proper acting role, a fabulous new flat and a gorgeous girlfriend. Landing one of the leading roles in a big theatre production should be a cause for celebration, but things don’t go quite to plan on her first day in the job.

Locking horns with self-obsessed co-star Nora, it’s clear Tess is going to have her work cut out, dealing with constant put-downs and snide comments. But new friendship and much needed support come in the shape of Hugo, a cynical but loveable actor.

Frankie and Tess are struggling with the rent for their new flat and go in search of a flatmate. Enter Lexy - a sexy, funny and straight-talking Australian doctor who instantly makes an impression on Tess. But she’s not the only one who reacts to Lexy’s arrival…

Frankie bumps into her former flame Sadie and offloads her troubles onto her. Sadie, who is down on her luck, decides to deliver some home truths.

Produced by Kudos Film and Television (Hustle, Ashes to Ashes, Spooks) through BBC Scotland, sexy six-part series Lip Service is written, created and executive produced by Harriet Braun (Mistresses, Attachments).

Cat is played by Laura Fraser, Sam by Heather Peace, Frankie by Ruta Gedmintas, Tess by Fiona Button, Nora by Sinéad Keenan, Hugh by Stuart McQuarrie, Lexy by Anna Skellern, Sadie by Natasha O’Keeffe, Jay by Emun Elliott and Ed by James Anthony Pearson.
