Scarborough cast

Leading the cast are comedian and actor Jason Manford and Catherine Tyldesley (Coronation Street).

They play Mike and Karen, a couple of nearly-40-somethings that are giving their relationship another go, five years after they split.

A synopsis of the series reads: “The pair were always meant to be together, but Mike’s ambition to become a professional entertainer meant that he was never at home. Now in his late 30’s, Mike has realised what’s actually important to him – he’s given up life on the road to come back to Scarborough and give their relationship another go.

“Between the local salon, Geraldine’s, and local pub/karaoke hot spot, The Good Ship, there’s never a dull day in town. But will the course of true love run smoothly for the couple the second time around, or will the trials and tribulations of their lives get in the way?”

Joining Jason and Catherine on the cast are Stephanie Cole (Still Open All Hours, Coronation Street), Maggie Ollerenshaw (Last of the Summer Wine, Still Open All Hours), Steve Edge (Phoenix Nights, Benidorm), Claire Sweeney (Brookside), Harriet Webb (Edge Of Heaven, White Gold) and Gina Fillingham (National Treasure: Kiri).

Meanwhile at Marion’s, Mr Ferris has popped round with a freshly baked pie and a very unexpected proposal, whilst at The Good Ship, Jack is making the final preparations for the big charity night, which includes a meat raffle and some very special guests.
