Miranda, Series 1 Episode 5 of 6

Duration: 30 minutes

Miranda has spent most of her life avoiding being set up by her mother Penny. Old school pal Tilly sets her up on a blind date with an army doctor friend, Dreamboat Charlie. The date doesn't go quite to plan and so Penny insists on throwing a party to introduce Miranda to a suitable man.

Miranda is notoriously bad at coming up with excuses, but when she sees a photo of her intended date he is so bad that the only option left is to lie and come out to her mother in an attempt to stop her from matchmaking.
