Here's the first clip from The Pact, BBC Two's new comedy starring Brett Goldstein and Sarah Solemani.

The pair play Andy and Amy, who made a pact when teenagers that if they were both still single at 35 they would get together.

Now that time has come Andy has gained a career, an ex-wife, a four-year-old son and a girlfriend; while Amy has managed to avoid growing up entirely, living in a flatshare, working behind a bar and enjoying the odd alcohol-fuelled one-night-stand.

This clip shows the morning after such an encounter.

The show also stars Lolly Adefope, Ade Adepitan and Gaby West, and starts at 10pm next Wednesday.
