26 Year-old Michelle Dean shares a flat in Manchester with her beautician friend Claire. She's got a new boyfriend, a job as a nutritionist and a cool Vespa. With babies, mortgages and career paths looming on the horizon, the pressure is on to get the party going - in a grown-up sort of way... While boyfriend Dean is not totally convinced Michelle can keep her fridge under control, let alone her libido - coping with a lack of responsibility is something her flatemates seem perfectly happy with. Claire's overriding concerns are maintaining her tan and resisting her urge to bite men, while Michelle's DJ brother, Mike - turns up on her doorstep with his 'ironic' record collection and his solicitor mate Grant - whose obsessions include Judge John Deed and getting Michelle to sleep with him. From making the mistake of saying 'I love you' too early in a relationship and worrying if you can catch rabies off a tramp; to the problems of dating four men all called Martin or deciding whether to buy healthy blueberries or Monster Munch? Michelle and her friends are ready to tackle the dilemmas of being a grown up head on.
