The Royle Family

The Royle Family

With their bums superglued to the sofa and their eyes to the box, the nation’s other first family are here to stay. Comfortably ensconced in their sitting room, Jim and Barbara Royle, daughter Denise, and long-suffering son Antony address some of life’s big issues, namely whose turn it is to go to the office, the joys of Wagon Wheels, and the merits of Family Fortunes.

With brilliant script writing by Caroline Ahern, this amazingly, yet scarily realistic observational comedy will have you in stitches in no time.
