Tonight: Cath Tyldesley and Stephanie Cole in Scarborough

Tonight's the night for the first episode of new BBC comedy show Scarborough. It starts at 9.30pm. It's been written by Benidorm creator Derren Litten and stars some familiar faces from Coronation Street.

Cath Tyldesley, who played Eva Price in Coronation Street, plays Karen in Scarborough and Stephanie Cole, who played Roy's mum Sylvia in Corrie is also in the show.  The synopsis for tonight's first episode, one of six, is this:

A week has passed since a devastated Karen caught Mike drunkenly kissing another woman at the back of a Scarborough seafront crab stall and she is still avoiding his calls. It’s only when they bump into each other at their regular Friday karaoke night that Mike finally has a chance to explain. But will Karen forgive him or is their relationship over forever?

Meanwhile at Geraldine’s hair salon there’s trouble brewing when one of the regular clients Mrs Bookham goes missing and the police are called. Its only when all the excitement is over that Geraldine has a confession to make to Karen.

Cath will also be appearing in this year's Strictly Come Dancing!

We've just watched it and our verdict is- it's a scaled down version of Benidorm! You've got the bar,the karoke, the title of the comedy is where it's set... there were some funny lines, but at times, it felt awkward and stilted. For us, it wasn't a hit.

Yes, it's pretty much rubbish. I watched it for the setting and the cast - I like Cath Tyldesley and Stephanie Cole, and I've been to Scarborough a few times - but I won't be watching any more.
