Amanda Redman’s new BBC One comedy pilot has left viewers begging for more, after they found it ‘hilarious’.

Her one-off comedy drama Bumps told the story of Anita (played by Amanda), a single woman of 62 who decided she wanted to have a baby via IVF, before discovering her daughter was also pregnant.

Viewers were expecting a potentially dull and predictable comedy but were delighted to be met with cheeky one-liners, hilariously awkward scenes and even a joke about a vibrator.

One viewer said: “Better than expected, actually. Good cast, some good music.”

Another agreed saying: “I was FULLY PREPARED to not like #Bumps but actually it’s quite good.”

Having a baby at her age? She’s older than the NHS.

Viewers now really want to see more…

As the comedy unfolded, viewers were in stitches over one particular scene when Anita showed a video to her IVF doctor with the eager phrase: “Have a look at this, this is me on my vibrator…”

There was much praise for lead actress Amanda Redman in her role as the determined Anita, who decided that she wanted a baby after realising her child-avoiding son and daughter wouldn’t be giving her any grandchildren to spoil.

Although, some will be in for a disappointment as they didn’t realise it was only a one-off (for now)…

However not all viewers thought the new series was funny, with a few watchers describing the new comedy as ‘clumsy’ and ‘predictable’.

The BBC is yet to announce whether the pilot will get a full series but we will keep you posted!
