Comic and heartfelt series about a young couple with learning disabilities. Based on true stories and created in part through improvisation.

However, she feels more optimistic after meeting Alex Huntesmith. Alex is a 17 year old man studying politics and economics for his A Levels, who hopes to go to Oxford. He's also the son of parents with learning disabilities. Alex plays himself in the drama, and his mother Jill features in tomorrow's episode.
