Lee and Dean (Channel 4 2018, Miles Chapman, Mark O’Sullivan)

In this sitcom Stevenage-based builders Lee and Dean are brothers from other mothers, inseparable best friends since they first met at school. That is until Lee meets and falls in love with Nikki and she moves into their flat.

Lee has also been enjoying ‘builder’s perks’ with posh client Mrs. Bryce-D’Souza, who sees their dalliances as more than client aftercare. When Mrs. Bryce-D’Souza turns up at Lee’s birthday party unannounced, Lee is terrified that she’ll tell Nikki what’s been going on… until Dean steps in to save the day. And when Dean’s dad Terry mishears a drunken conversation, he unknowingly forces Lee and Nikki to commit to each other publicly.
