Synopsis

Toyshop owner Harry Sankey (David Thewlis) leads a simple life in the quiet Northern town of Gigglewaite, but the sudden and tragic death of Nancy, his beloved wife and the idolised mother of his estranged son, Sam (Sean Ward) soon turns it all upside down. He then finds himself trying to cope, just as unsuccessfully, with the unusual role of quiz show contestant, believing it to be Nancy's last wish for him to participate in the popular but bizarre TV show 'Cheeky', hosted by the brilliant cheesy Alf Price (Johnny Vegas). Once persuaded, Harry reluctantly joins the crazy show and coincidentally meets another Nancy (Trudi Styler), his charming fellow contestant, who attempts to draw him out of his misery.
