The Ex-Wife | Preview (Channel 5)
The Ex-Wife, based on the hit psychological thriller book of the same name comes to Channel 5 after landing on Paramount+ last year. Starring Céline Buckens, Tom Mison, Janet Montgomery, Victoria & Dominika Toth and Jordan Stephens.
Newly married Tasha is living the dream: she has a beautiful London home, a loving and successful husband in Jack, and a gorgeous little girl, Emily. Everything would be perfect if only her husband's ex-wife Jen would leave them alone.
Jen calls constantly and has close ties to Jack's family which is making life incredibly uncomfortable for Tasha. After a series of increasingly intrusive encounters, Tasha begins to think Jen might be trying to manipulate her way back into Jack’s life - but is Tasha just being paranoid?
When one day Tasha finds Jack and Emily gone without trace, Tasha’s worst fears are realised and she discovers that the dream she is living may be about to turn into a nightmare.
Desperate to get her daughter back, Tasha will do anything to get to the truth, even if that means accepting an offer of help from Jen. But can she trust her? And do either of them really know the man they married?
Episode 1: Tasha is living the dream: she has the perfect house, a loving husband and a beautiful little girl. But there’s one large blot on Tasha’s marital landscape: her husband’s ex-wife won’t leave them alone and seems intent on staying in the picture.
In the first of a series of increasingly uncomfortable encounters, Tasha and Jack’s anniversary dinner is interrupted by a call from Jen. And when Tasha is awkwardly reminded of Jen’s close ties to Jack’s family, fear leads her to ask Jack to cut contact with Jen.
The Ex-Wife begins Sunday 15th October at 9pm on Channel 5.
