As the series begins, sisters Sharon (Pauline Quirke) and Tracey (Linda Robson) are living separate lives, and Dorien (Lesley Joseph) has seemingly flown off into the sunset to live a jetsetting life as a writer of a racy novel, "Sixty Shades of Green". Meanwhile Tracey's marriage to former robber Darryl petered out years ago and she has since remarried and got divorced again... but she still lives in relative comfort in Essex's legendary Chigwell with pampered teenage son Travis. She gets by with a telesales job but times aren't easy. Meanwhile Sharon scrapes a minimum wage in "World of Quid", Essex's leading "everything's a pound" chain, and is as chippy as ever. But Sharon misses the comfort of her sister's home, and after a chance meeting at Dorien's book signing, their lives collide once more - an impending court case means that Dorien has nowhere to go and moves in.
