What happens when your first love is a distant memory but you haven't yet found "the one"?
Alice Chenery (Tamsin Greig), is an account manager for a perfume company in a London department store, struggling to maintain a flat in Brighton she cannot afford. Michael Landes, (The Wonder Years and The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air) plays Gil Raymond, a successful American comedy writer who has fled his home country in search of artistic integrity and a lasting relationship. The parallel lives of this perfectly matched couple -- who have yet to meet each other -- unfold revealing their hopes, fears and dating disasters as they try to remain sane in a world from which they each feel increasingly excluded.
Will Alice's potential partners turn out to be any less bizarre, embarrassing or generally unsuitable than in the first series?
Alice is now an account manager for a perfume counter in a London department store. Millie and Cleo are her sweet, ever-so-slightly deranged staff, keen to see the funny, caring but somewhat reticent Alice find the happiness she deserves - and not above fighting each other in pursuit of their own. This series charts the highs and lows of the three girls' quirky encounters with the opposite sex, in search of all three's perfect match.
Alice's new friends drag her into the world of showbiz. There, her encounters with heartthrob actor Jake Randall, veteran comedian Gordon Bexter, madcap Marty Cady and a German necrophiliac only serve to increase her self-doubt. Could Douglas really be "the one"? Should she adopt the more off-beat attitude to romance shared by her perfume counter colleagues Millie and Cleo? Or could it really be possible that she lost her soul mate?
