The debut of Love Productions’ latest social experiment for BBC Three attracted well above average viewing figures with the arrival of a group of young mums at a West Country mansion. The mums will be living together and learning from each other over ten dramatic episodes. Can communal living turn their lives around or are they too set in their ways?
Britain’s Youngest Grannies from Love Productions presents a radically different image of grand-parenthood. The five women in this extraordinary film are young enough to have babies, to attract young men and to party - but they are all grandmothers. They had children when they were very young and their own children have followed in their footsteps. Catch Britain’s Youngest Grannies on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer.
