Cast and characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Lee Evans, as Lee[2] a barely employed musician and everything he touches seems to turn to disaster. He does write tunes for mobile phone ringtones and has a son, Lucas, with his now estranged wife, Eileen.
  • Steven O'Donnell as Stuart, Lee's slobbish and disorganised best friend. He allows Lee to stay in his flat against his better judgement and soon regrets his decision. He is a double glazing window salesman and was married to Wendy and had children with her.
  • Sophie Thompson as Heather, Lee and Stuart's fiercely neurotic landlady. She appears desperate to find a man, while also being a failed "IT" girl. Her father is in prison for embezzlement.
