TV Show directory - Age before Beauty

Married to Wesley (Murray) for 25 years, Bel (Walker) has spent the last 18 years as a homemaker and mum to their twins, but having just waved them off to university, now has a void in her life. Enter Teddy (Green), brother-in-law and long-time best friend, begging her to step in and rescue the family business - a down-at-heel beauty salon in Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Like Bel, it could do with a bit of a face-lift. And possibly a clear-out, since it employs her high-maintenance family: mother Ivy-Rae played by Johnston (Northern Soul fanatic and spray tan technician), sisters Leanne (Harrison - part-time nail technician, part-time personal stylist), Tina (Riley -body artist aka tattooist) and Heidi (Myers - fillers and Botox, Cosmetic Surgery addict) mother to Disney, plump, seven year old wannabe Pageant Queen.

Into the mix comes beautiful 20-something Personal Trainer Lorelei (Mantock) who seems to have caught Wes's eye… can Bel reconcile the demands of her business, her warring family and the problems in her marriage?
