Episode 3: House Husband of the Year

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One Scotland HDLatest broadcast: on BBC One Northern Ireland

Family man Tom Whyte is a man who tries to be the best dad he can be to his two sons, while his wife works full time; but chaos in the Whyte family household is never far away, especially when a national victory is at stake.

Tom is first to admit he is no domestic god but, when a national competition to find the House Husband of the Year is announced, he gets dragged into a rigorous training schedule. With his competitive mother Mary as his trainer and the assistance of Pat, Roddy, Elaine and his sons, Tom eventually finds his inner Mammy and goes head to head with his neighbour Tim in the gripping final. But as always in the Whyte family, things don't run quite to plan and a surprise outcome in the final could see Tom's hard work scuppered. Show less
