Coming soon to BBC One, the new Debbie Horsfield drama Age Before Beauty, a family saga set in a Manchester beauty salon starring Robson Green (Grantchester), Sue Johnston (Downton Abbey), Polly Walker (Mr Selfridge) and James Murray (Him).
The six-part drama, written by Horsfield (Poldark, Cutting It) and made by Mainstreet Pictures, is an exploration of youth, age, instant gratification and long-term relationships, all set within the beauty industry. At its heart is an unconventional family rife with sibling rivalries and unconventional parenting through the generations.
Also starring in the series are Lisa Riley (Three Girls), Kelly Harrison (The Level), Vicky Myers (The Five) and Madeleine Mantock (Into The Badlands).
Married to Wesley (James Murray) for 25 years, Bel (Polly Walker) has spent the last 18 years as a homemaker and mum to their twins - but having just waved them off to university, now has a void in her life. Enter Teddy (Robson Green), brother-in-law and long-time best friend, begging her to step in and rescue the family business - a down-at-heel beauty salon in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Like Bel, it could do with a bit of a face-lift. And possibly a clear-out, since it employs her high-maintenance family: mother Ivy-Rae (Sue Johnston), a Northern Soul fanatic and spray tan technician; sisters Leanne (Kelly Harrison) - part-time nail-technician, part-time personal stylist; Tina (Lisa Riley) -'body artist' aka tattooist; and Heidi (Myers) - fillers & Botox, cosmetic surgery addict - mother to Disney, plump, nine year-old wannabe Pageant Queen.
Into the mix comes beautiful 20-something Personal Trainer Lorelei (Madeleine Mantock)who seems to have caught Wes's eye... can Bel reconcile the demands of her business, her warring family and the problems in her marriage?
Bel, after spending the past 18 years as a home-maker, steps in to save the family business in a failing family run beauty salon in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. She will have to contend with the salon’s high-maintenance staff – her family. Family feuds and bitter rivalries, professional and personal, escalate in the salon amongst the Botox, fillers and face-lifts.
