Antenatal classes are the perfect breeding ground for budding friendships. But, as the stars of new BBC drama In The Club reveal labour and sleep patterns aren’t expectant mums’ only concerns.

To say the BBC’s latest drama In The Club is a family affair is an understatement. Written by Fat Friends creator Kay Mellor, produced by her daughter Yvonne Francas, and with younger daughter, Emmerdale actress Gaynor Faye, working as a script editor, it’s a true family project.

“I’m really excited by the calibre of cast we’ve attracted; the level of talent is staggering.

“I feel flattered and honoured to have such amazing actors bringing my characters to life.”

In The Club is a 6×60-minute drama about pregnancy, imminent birth, love and the changing nature of relationships that a new baby brings to a modern family. The series follows six very different couples, who’ve bonded at the local Parent Craft class in the last trimester of their pregnancies. Each has their own unique issues to deal with, be it swollen feet, chronic wind or Braxton Hicks alongside debt, divorce and even death.

“Birth is the ultimate creation, it changes you and your relationships forever. I’m still close friends with the people I met on my antenatal class. It’s a special time in your life,” she said.

The Club is being made by Kellor’s production company, Rollem Productions and will air next year.
