When best friends Jackie and Pat said they were just nipping out for some fags, their husbands didn’t think they’d be long – that was a month ago…

Rather than popping down to the shops, the two good time girls jumped on a plane to America for the jolly of a lifetime! Pat is going to marry Bubba, a prisoner on death row who she has fallen in love with on the internet, and Jackie is going to be her maid of honour. To add to the excitement, their adventure is being filmed by Channel 5.

Back home, Pat’s husband Bobby enlists the help of Bernie – a faded drag queen, to look after the kids – while he and Jackie’s hubby Sylvester follow Man City around Europe. But things never run smoothly in the Pickles household and when a family tragedy threatens to destroy them it’s left to Bobby to become the man no one thought he was.

From the producers of Gin & Chronic Arthritis and Posh Tramps & Papooses, They’ve Just Nipped Out For Fags is a celebration of dysfunctional families everywhere.
