The first two series of the British comedy drama written by and starring Ruth Jones. 40-something single mother Stella (Jones) spends her time in Pontyberry looking after her children and earning money by ironing for the locals.
Her eldest son, Luke (Craig Gallivan), is soon to be released from prison and she is worried about how he will readjust to life in the community.
Her daughter, Emma (Catrin Stewart), is dating Sunil (Rory Girvan) but their relationship might be more serious than Stella thought, while her youngest, Ben (Justin Davies), is the bright spark of the family but his inquisitiveness can lead him to trouble.
To make matters worse, her ex-husband is dating a beautiful 28-year-old but Stella may have found a love interest of her own in the form of kind-hearted painter and decorator Sean (Kenny Doughty).
In series two, Stella's got more than enough on her plate after discovering that she's pregnant.
To make matters worse, she's not sure if it's Sean's, or if she even really loves him!
As luck would have it, the activities of the good folks of Pontyberry manage to keep her mind on other things for a while.
