NOW SHOWING: Mister Eleven debuts at 9pm on Friday, December 11

AIRS: Fridays at 9pm on ITV1

WHY YOU MIGHT LOVE IT: It has an air of Bridget Jones about it (even including an "all by myself" montage scene) and is easy, thought-free viewing. Perfect for a winter's evening curled up in front of the TV with a big box of chocolates.

WHY YOU MIGHT HATE IT: Mister Eleven shamelessly targets the female demographic as it delivers exactly what it says on the tin--a romantic-comedy with little substance. Luckily for those men forced to watch by their partners, it stars some rather beautiful women.

THE PREMISE: Numbers-obsessed Sarah "Saz" Paley (Bionic Woman's Michelle Ryan) has just married her perfect man. Or so she thought. She believed hunky doctor Dan (Krod Mandoon's Sean Maguire) was her Mister Eleven--the eleventh man she'd slept with thus statistically her perfect man--but he wasn't.

During their wedding reception Saz comes face-to-face with an old flame (Britannia High's Adam Garcia) who informs her that when she thought they'd drunkenly made love she'd actually just passed out--meaning that Dan wasn't, mathematically speaking, the right man for her.

An emotional rollercoaster ensues as she doubts her marriage and lusts over Alex, the-man-that-could-have-been. Unsurprisingly, her new husband is less than amused and their relationship soon breaks down, leaving Saz with a tough decision--should she try to make things work with Dan, or pursue her true Mister Eleven?

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The show is littered with famous faces, including Slumdog Millionaire's Dev Patel, Peep Show's Olivia Coleman and Bonkers' Lynda Bellingham.
