Comedy series about the long-distance relationship of Essex boy Gavin and Welsh lass Stacey.
Gavin is an ordinary boy from Billericay, Essex. Stacey is an ordinary girl from Barry Island, South Wales. They’ve spoken on the phone every day at work for months but they’ve never actually met... until now. Stacey’s guardian-uncle Bryn is worried about his niece’s plan to meet up with this strange boy Gavin, so he provides her with a rape alarm for her big trip to London. Gavin’s mum Pamela is very excited for her ‘little prince’, while his best mate Smithy is sceptical and more concerned about what Stacey’s mate Nessa is going to look like. Nessa couldn’t care either way, to be honest. When the four meet up, several pints and eight aftershocks later, romance blossoms in the most unexpected of places...View Scenes
