Michael is moving into 10 Downing Street and there will be no charm offensives with this Prime Minister, not with a country to run. There’s no time for lunches with the press while there are children living in poverty. And there’s certainly no time to comment on a minister’s illicit affair while the country needs more nurses.

But when his family’s private life looks set to be the next big story, Michael seeks help from a press secretary who advises ‘Feed the beast before it turns on you.’ Can Michael keep politics centre stage or will he become next the big story himself?
