Today BBC One have released a first look image from their upcoming 90-minute drama Care which stars Sinead Keenan, Alison Steadman and Sheridan Smith.
Care will air later this year and is written by Jimmy McGovern, together with Gillian Juckes whose real life experiences formed the inspiration for the story.
Sheridan Smith plays Jenny, a mother-of-two raising her girls alone after the departure of her husband Dave. Her one lifeline is Mary, played by Alison Steadman, Jenny’s widowed mother, whose help with childcare allows Jenny to hold down her full-time job at the supermarket.
When Mary suffers a devastating stroke and develops dementia, Jenny’s world comes crashing down and everything changes for her and her sister Claire, played by Sinead Keenan.
Finding herself torn between her own life and the wellbeing of her mother, Jenny soon discovers that another way could be possible - but she’ll have to fight for it.
Care will air later this year on BBC One
