‘The Tuckers’ is a comedy about a family of chancers, low on cash but high on spirit – determined to survive through any means necessary.
They run a catering business, not always successfully, and a few things on the side, not always legit. Peggy rules the roost, with Glyn, her son, next in command.
His children, Billy and Bobby, are never far from trouble, and Bobby’s ex-wife Natalie lives next door – with Shaks, a young girl with an appetite for mayhem. The family bicker endlessly amongst themselves, but if you cross one Tucker, you cross them all, and you’ll think twice about crossing them again (especially Grampa Murphy, who spends most of his time in an outside toilet, armed with a gun).
Watch L&C’s wonderful Kimberley Nixon & New Artist Alexandria Riley in the ‘The Tuckers’ on BBC2 tonight from 10pm.
