BBC's new comedy, Avoidance, follows dad Jonathan whose life revolves around his nine-year-old son Spencer and has also always left the big and small decisions to his partner Claire. 

But when Claire demands he leave, Jonathan realises he has to try and keep his son happy in the fact of the break-up. 

While his relationship falls apart, the conflict-averse parent takes the youngster with him to live with his sister and her wife, creating an unlikely family unit. 

The show is written and executive produced by comedian Romesh Ranganathan who is best known for his hit show The Ranganation and starring alongside fellow comedian Rob Beckett in Rob & Romesh Vs.
