Catherine Tate is making a one-off special for comedy channel Gold about an estranged husband who book into a hotel in an attempt reconciliation talks after her affair with a much younger man.
Tate, who plays wife Anna, will be joined by Miles Jupp, Sian Gibson and Kirsten Wareing in the 60-minute Do Not Disturb which is set to air next year.
With Tate’s character checking into the honeymoon suite, her husband unexpectedly heads to the room a short while later. To add to the confusion, unbeknown to the couple, a 21-year-old man is lying comatose, semi-naked, and asleep in the bathtub, recovering from a rowdy stag do.
What happens next will either make or break their marriage for good. Anna now has to come up with a plan, deal with well-meaning though hapless hotel staff, and try not to rouse the suspicions of her husband, who has been rocked by her previous betrayal…
Simon Lupton, Commissioning Editor at Gold owners UKTV, said: “We’re delighted that Catherine Tate will bring her unique wit and comedy genius to the heart of this landmark programme for Gold.
“Do Not Disturb has all the hallmarks of a brilliant comedic set up that will resonate with the channel’s audience.”
