And while we’re on the topic of escapism, Funny Woman is the perfect short but memorable series to get stuck into this month, starring Gemma Arterton, Rupert Everett and loads more top acting talents.

Set in 1964, women are expected to be flirty, fabulous, and fertile – but they’re not expected to be funny. Born in Blackpool, Barbara (Arterton) sets off for London without a plan but with a dream to find her voice in the male-dominated world of the 1960’s sitcom scene.

An adaption of Nick Hornby’s bestselling novel Funny Girl, the new six-part comic drama is a modern take on the classic story, focusing on a time when sitcom telly was in its infancy.

Promising a lot of laughs and some stellar performances, it’s definitely one to add to your watch-list for the weeks ahead. The backdrop to all the comedy and drama that ensues is 1960s London, a glamourous setting as Barbara rises from obscurity to household name, making it the perfect spot to send one lucky winner for a last-minute getaway.

And with all six episodes dropping at once, it makes for the ideal TV binge.
