Semi-Detached follows Stuart (Mack), a failing wedding DJ whose life in suburbia spirals downhill.

Stuart’s hopes of a quiet life are crushed by his chaotic family including his much younger partner April (Ellie White) and their new-born baby, his law-breaking brother Charlie (Neil Fitzmaurice) and his drug-taking father, Willie (Clive Russell).

An evening with Lee Mack

As he approaches 50, Mack reflected on his career in discussion with Shane Allen, the BBC’s controller of comedy commissioning, at an RTS North West event.

Allen introduced Mack as “a natural comedy brain” and there is a good reason for this: Mack is currently writing his 10th series of Not Going Out – and he let on that he is in talks with Allen to make a further two.
