Everywhere you look, love is causing chaos.
From the new, bachelor Prime Minister who falls in love thirty seconds after entering Downing Street, to a loser sandwich delivery guy who doesn’t have a hope with the girls; from a jilted writer who escapes to the south of France in the hopes of nursing his broken heart, to an ageing rock star trying to make a comeback at any price; from a bride having problems with her husband’s best man, to a married woman having trouble with her husband; from a schoolboy with a crush on the prettiest girl in the school, to his architect step-father with a crush on Claudia Schiffer.
Their London lives and loves collide, mingle and climax on Christmas Eve - again and again and again - with romantic, poignant and funny consequences for all.
