Review

Age before Beauty is infuriating. It’s meandering, silly and incredibly unlikely, with a nonsensical Othello-type subplot and characters who are, to a man and woman, impossible to like.

Yet just when you’ve given up all hope, usually by the last ten minutes, it fires into life with the prospect of something juicy.

Take this episode. The beauty salon-based stuff is boring, thanks to the dominance of the dreadful Leanne, who sucks the very air out of the place by being just so awful. There’s a lot of nonsense involving mobile billboards and a revenge plot spearheaded by Bel’s ghastly mother.

But things look as if they might kick off when home-wrecking Lorelei has a revelation.

Summary

Bel enlists the help of Ivy-Rae with regards to confronting her marital problems with Wes. Meanwhile, Leanne is trying to get one up on Bel and has organised a billboard to promote the salon. However, Leanne has overpaid for it and is distraught when Teddy publicly sides with Bel. At the unveiling of the sign, Leanne is spoiling for a fight with Bel because she feels undermined by the family, assuming Bel's in charge at the salon. Debbie Horsfield's drama, starring Polly Walker and Robson Green.
