Close to the Edge

Life just gets better with age.

Close To The Edge is a warm and witty constructed reality series that follows a group of retirees in a seaside town and reveals how life’s little dramas certainly don’t stop at retirement, if anything they get a lot more fun! Charismatic, free spirited, opinionated and all quite naughty, our over-65s are determined to make the most of the time they have left. There’s Vanessa, a former ‘brothel madam’ who is hoping her past won’t get in the way of her political ambitions; John who’s dipping his toe into the dating world again after 40 years out of the game, and Babs who is determined to build up her own business. With big dreams and unfulfilled desires, they all want second chances. Life doesn’t have to stop just because you are claiming your pension!
