New Yorker Leila is feeling lost in London having decided to go on a ‘break’ from her 10-year relationship with girlfriend and business partner Sadie; played by Earache’s phenomenal Maxine Peake.

Moving out of their shared flat, but still faced with the fresh hell of seeing her ex every day at their joint tech company, Leila ends up renting a room from neurotic novelist Gabe.

Leila begins sleeping with men but struggles to come out as bisexual to her gay friends, most importantly her best mate, the near un-shockable Deniz. She finds an unlikely wingman in the form of Gabe. As Leila makes changes, so does Sadie – changes that take her in a very different direction…

Catch Maxine in ‘The Bisexual’ from 10th October, 10pm, C4
