Tess, (Tanya Franks - Pulling, Mum), was determined to save as many kids as she could from the sort of childhood she had.

Monday 29 August, 10pm

Along with her husband Toby (Paterson Joseph, Peep Show, Green Wing) she now divides just about enough money and nowhere near enough time between their three adopted children Frankie (Erin Kellyman), Alisha (India Brown) and Charlie (Joseph West). Tess tries to improve Charlie’s popularity by gate-crashing his classmate’s eighth birthday party, while back at home Toby has to deal with Alisha’s sudden interest in religion.

Written by award-winning writer (and adoptee) Andy Wolton, The Coopers Vs The Rest is produced by BBC Studios and directed by Declan Lowney (Moone Boy, Father Ted, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa). The producer is Victoria Lloyd, (Just a Minute). The Executive Producer is Stephen McCrum (Mrs Brown’s Boys, Bluestone 42, Flat TV).
