Star lives with her mum and her mum's old university friend, Charlie, who has broken up with his wife. Star doesn't always like Charlieshe certainly doesn't like his two kids, Talia and Gabe. So when Star's mum, Nell, begins to fall in love with Charlie and he moves in properly, Star isn't sure how she feels about it.
