This semi-autobiographical take on the material focuses on inseparable childhood friends Maggie and Birdy, who embark on their first London houseshare in trendy Camden with two of their university pals. 

The young millennials dance the night away and knock back cocktails until the clubs close, but burgeoning romantic relationships threaten to drive a wedge between them.

Maggie (Appleton) – loosely based on the author – declares everyone “so old and unfun” as they find comfort in long-term relationships. Meanwhile, Birdy gets serious with new beau Nathan (played by Ryan Bown), which increasingly alienates her from Mags.

Also starring Marli Siu and Jordan Peters (Gangs of London) and Aliyah Odoffin in her on-screen debut, this comedy-drama wryly charts the bumpy trajectory of your twenties, full of insecurity, bad dates and the thrill of Friday nights out with your friends.

Our guide below explains how to watch Everything I Know About Love online, and for FREE on BBC iPlayer in the UK.
