By Katherine Jakeways

Romantic comedy about love, infidelity and accidental pregnancy.

When Bayley has a fall, Rose rushes her to hospital and is forced to reveal who she really is. Then as she awaits news of Bayley and the baby, Rose meets Sam for the first time since the break up.

Forty Weeks tells the story of a pregnancy, from conception to birth. It's a love story between two people, just not the two people who are having the baby.

Writer Katherine Jakeways (North by Northamptonshire) is described by The Radio Times as the 'new Victoria Wood' saying "her character comedy is so acutely observed and so sharp that it's in danger of causing permanent injury." Starring Rebecca Humphries (Big Bad World), Matthew Baynton (The Wrong Mans), Kimberley Nixon (Fresh Meat) and Julia Deakin (I'm Alan Partridge).

Directed by James Robinson
A BBC Cymru Wales Production.
