In the series Emilia and Dawn play two women who go head to head after being betrayed by the same man.
Delicious is an honest and compelling story of love, sex, lies and betrayal, where things are never as they seem. – Sky
Passionate cook Gina (Dawn French) was once married to Leo Vincent (Iain Glen), a successful entrepreneur, chef and hotel owner in Cornwall. Leo owes much of his success to Gina’s exceptional cooking, but since leaving her for the glamorous Sam (Emilia Fox), his business has continued to thrive.
When Sam has suspicions that Leo is having an affair she confides in Gina, thinking she is well-placed to relate to the situation, but later discovers that it’s Gina herself who is the ‘other woman’! The secrets and scandals that spill out are proof that sleeping with another woman’s husband is never a good idea – even if he was your husband first. As Sam and Gina try to fix their broken families, will a friendship rise from the ashes of betrayal or will they tear each other apart?
“I’m absolutely delighted to be part of Sky’s new drama Delicious. As a starter it’s heaven to be working with Dawn French and Iain Glen again. For main course – an absolute treat to be working on such great scripts. For the perfect recipe – a brilliant crew, cast and production team. I can’t wait to tuck in!” – Emilia Fox
Filming is currently underway on Delicious which was commissioned for Sky by head of drama Anne Mensah. The series is made by Bandit Television and is part of the broadcaster’s commitment to offer customers brand new original drama all year round.
