Episode 6

Not for the first time, Kate is being sued, but this time by Councillor Bone.

Koji discovers he is under investigation for working illegally, and things do not improve when he tells Kate what he really thinks about her grandson.

However, a stand-off cannot last forever, especially with the fate of the cafe and Koji’s asylum status hanging in the balance.
 

Series overview

Kate & Koji is a brand new sitcom for ITV.

Respected stage and screen actress Brenda Blethyn will take on the title role of Kate in this new comedy with British television, theatre and film actor Jimmy Akingbola taking on the role of Koji.

Kate & Koji centres around a working-class woman who runs an old-fashioned café in a seaside town and who develops a strong, if sometimes volatile, friendship with an asylum-seeking African doctor.

Although from very different worlds, Kate and Koji are similar in ways which they do not recognise, including a dogged determination to never back down!

Blake Harrison and Barbara Flynn will also star in Kate & Koji, Blake plays Kate's nephew 'Medium' and Barbara plays Councillor Bone, Kate's lifelong arch enemy.
