Love Hurts on BritBox UK

25 May 2022 14:38

Many fans fondly remember Love Hurts. The witty, touching BBC comedy-drama made Zoë a household name overnight and ran for three series in the early 1990s. She and former popstar Adam Faith starred as Tessa and Frank, a corporate exec turned charity worker and plumber turned self-made millionaire, who meet when the former has a plumbing problem!

The characters' relationship rarely goes smoothly (as the show's title suggests), but because Zoë and her co-star acted so wonderfully together, every episode is a joy to watch. As Faith wrote in his autobiography, 'Guy Slater, the producer of Love Hurts, put Zoë and me together for a lunch and after about two and a half seconds we were firm friends.'

Although Love Hurts has been released in the UK as a DVD boxset, I'm not aware of it being repeated on TV here - until now! All 30 episodes will be available on streaming service BritBox UK from 2 June, according to an ITV press release. Ideal if you fancy binging the show over the long weekend.

I'm so glad one of Zoe's most successful TV programmes will soon be (re)discovered by viewers across the UK. And if you're in the US instead, don't worry - you can still watch Love Hurts via Acorn TV on Amazon.
