Synopsis:

Colin Combes is facing a crisis. He’s 42 and a gardening journalist. But it’s even worse than that. He’s starting to suspect his wife, Freya, of harbouring secret yearnings for her ex, the ageing pop star Gordon ‘Midge’ Midgely, best known for the novelty hit "Be My Bear". And threre’s one more thing. Tomorrow morning, the eccentric colonoscopist Dr Woolf will insert a camera and find out whether Colin has bowel cancer. Colin has, however, made a solemn vow. If he gets the all-clear, he will sing in a rock group as a surprise at Freya’s 40th birthday party. Only one small detail can prevent him stealing the show – he doesn’t actually have a band. But with help from Freya’s dad, former session musician Erwin Beyer, he persuades his oddball group of friends to help him out. Can Colin overcome all the odds? His band has little talent, and the path to rock and roll glory is rarely a smooth one. When step-son Jake takes the mike and announces: ‘Please welcome on stage…’ will Colin’s mouth go dry? Will he be able to go through with it? What if he falls flat on his face? Or what if there’s a twist in the tale that no one has seen coming?
