Synopsis

When Stevie meets Neil on the day he comes to deliver her new kitchen, it's already too late for love at first sight. Stevie's already five minutes pregnant by her Italian footballer husband Andrea; and it's too late for Neil too - his wife Jenny has already sent off for an African child to adopt.

But too late or otherwise, love at first sight is exactly what happens. How can Neil and Stevie get out of their mistaken marriages and into each other's arms? Simple really - while Neil contemplates suicide under the Angel of the North, his wife is run over on her way to buy a pint of milk.

Andrea proves harder to shift, but eventually, via the arms of a twenty year old beautician, tells the truth (in perfect English, too) about what he really thinks of women.

Is perfect harmony in sight, in this comedy set in Newcastle?
