What is 'Scarborough' about?

The show, written and directed by Derren Litten, award-winning creator of smash hit series Benidorm, is set in Scarborough and the follows the lives of a motley band of residents who are bonded by family, friendship and their love of karaoke.

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 30s, 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?
