In life love doesn’t always run to the form guide…

4/1 Matt the gambler with a dysfunctional brain, heart and penis. Might need more experience
9/5 F. Paige the bookies favourite who is as shallow as she is devious, an obvious choice
20/1 Helen the outsider, a few skeletons in the closet but has experience if past doesn’t haunt her
7/2 Sam suffering from a broken marriage and loss but might have enough to take the spoils, safe hands

WORTH A FLUTTER is a dark, hard hitting comedy that covers life, love and loss as we follow Matt and Sam as they compete for Helen’s affections. We see the dark and tragic past of four broken characters to see what has lead them to this point and how they try to move forward. Broken marriages, loss, domestic violence and a dysfunctional member. No wonder true love never runs smoothly.

Off the back of writer Michael Head’s past two successful shows comes the writers hardest hitting and most comic show to date! Cast includes Lucy Pinder (The Royals) and Paul Danan (Hollyoaks)
