Back by popular demand, we've a new series of original sitcom shorts from northern gossips' Florrie and Dotty this Easter. Janice Fryett and Lindsay Eavis star as they get to grips with everything from 'permitted exercise', bending 'the rules' Bridgerton-inspired sexual experimentation, designer vaginas, Mother's Day and misogyny.
Episode 1 - Queen of Tarts
Florrie and Dotty catch up in February with 'walk and talk' during permitted exercise. They chat about bending 'the rules', 'first-footing', Bridgerton-inspired sexual experimentation and designer vaginas.

About Florrie & Dotty are two ladies in their sixties who blend past and present with their unique sense of humour and way with words. They love a cuppa (and something stronger), a nice sweet fancy and will have a sideswipe at anything from the neighbours to social issues, sexuality and social media. They live in neat stone built terraces houses in a (northern) street near you.
