Nail Bar Boys | Preview (BBC Three)

Meet Astro, Little Kenny, Brandon, Bruno, Dragon and Big Tony. Together, they work in a nail salon in Liverpool. But this is no ordinary workplace - it’s all about fun, friendship and fighting to overcome the odds.

Follow these British Vietnamese lads from Liverpool and Manchester as they support each other, and their customers, through some of life’s toughest challenges, including dealing with addiction, overcoming racism and searching for love.

See Astro grow in confidence as he ramps up training for a charity boxing match with local barber George. Has the Nail Bar Boy learnt from his defeat in their previous encounter, has he now got what it takes to beat his local rival?

Watch as Bruno continues to battle his own demons as suspicions rise that he’s been gambling again - but will he be honest with the boys as they rally round to offer their advice and support?

Meanwhile Astro’s younger brother Kenny wants to find ‘the one’. He turned his life around in lockdown, losing weight and gaining confidence, now he’s ready for a relationship. Manager Brandon is convinced the lads are all cursed when it comes to love - but could speed dating really be the answer to their romantic woes?

It’s available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer from 21 November.
