The last of BBC One’s Comedy Playhouse series of pilots sees Rob Beckett taking centre stage, playing a version of himself.

In Static, Rob has decided to quit his job and move back in with his parents. However, he has a shock when he learns that his mother and father, Cath and Gal (Alison Steadman and Phil Davis), have recently decided to sell their home and have now moved into a static caravan in a Margate holiday park.

Thus Rob finds himself kipping on his parent’s sofa bed, while also dealing with a hidden Mr Whippy dispenser in the caravan wall’s and a swear jar – but only if anyone mentions Brexit.

Static is on BBC One at 22.35.
