Set in the mid-90s at the height of Cool Britannia, My Mad Fat Diary is a six-part drama based on Rae Earl's real-life diaries. It takes a hilarious and honest look at teenage life through the eyes of Rae (Sharon Rooney), a funny, music-mad 16 year old who, despite an eccentric mother (Claire Rushbrook), body image and mental health issues, has a huge lust for life, love and trying to get laid. In the opening episode, Rae is discharged from psychiatric hospital after months of treatment. Back in the real world, all she wants is to be a normal teenager, but when you're secretly mad and your mother is hiding her new Tunisian boyfriend from immigration, it's not that simple. Rae discovers her best friend Chloe (Jodie Comer) is hanging out with a new gang, but will she be able to fit in with them?
