#thedaltons to join the discussion
Matt and his wife Kate have been married for 20 years, and their two daughters, Holly and Millie, are both entering their final years at high school. They liken their family to the real-life version of the Dunphy’s from Modern Family – one of their favourite TV shows. There’s always a disagreement over the girls constant chatter and the TV remote for Sport v Lifestyle shows. You’ll always find Kate with a cup of tea, the girls with their mobile phones, and Matt just trying to get a word in edgeways.
#wayneandtom to join the discussion
Wayne and Tom met at a country dance while Kylie Minogue’s, Love at First Sight was playing. 15-years later, they've raised 3 children together and are still as madly in love as the day they first met. Wayne's addiction to watching anything “zombie”, sci-fi and comedy shows is no match for Tom's obsession with Kylie Minogue. Wayne, Tom and their dog, Satie, share the lounge every night, watching shows like Grand Designs, Downton Abbey and The Real Housewives, always with a drink in hand.
#anastasiaandfaye to join the discussion
Faye and Anastasia met at a Melbourne night club. Faye jokes that Anastasia thought she was trying to pick her up at first, and the two haven’t stopped talking and laughing since. Born in Australia to Greek parents, Faye and Anastasia never miss their favourite shows like The Block, The Big Bang Theory and Criminal Minds. When the two draw breath from talking about the latest celebrity gossip, they’re ready to relax in front of the box with wine, chips ‘n’ dips, chocolate and ice cream.
#adamandsymon to join the discussion
Best mates with a thirst for life (and a beer), Adam and Symon, met on a university pub crawl. Both Physiotherapy students, they’ve just returned from volunteering overseas. Adam grew up in the country and moved to the big smoke for university and has been happily increasing his HECS debt ever since. Symon decided at the age of 26 it was time to start acting like an adult, so he went back to uni and got glasses. They love watching sports, Breaking Bad, House of Cards and Entourage.
#leeandkeith to join the discussion
Happily married for almost 30 years, Lee and Keith, live in Melbourne’s outer-northern suburbs with their two adult children. After a big day of work at the local council, Keith is welcomed home by an early dinner that’s been loving prepared by Lee, followed by a cup of tea and a snuggle on the lounge, much to their daughter’s embarrassment.

The Jacksons are a loud, happy and sports-crazy family made up of mum Stacey, dad Grant, and their six kids ranging in age from 17 to 2 years old: Corey, Britney, Jesse, Chase, Kane and Nate. Stacey and Grant met when they were in high school and started their family quite young, and now have been happily married for over 15-years.

Vivacious friends and housemates have a 17-year age gap between them, but the two hit it off instantly and have been best friends for 3 years. The girls live with Tom, who has Down syndrome and both Angie and Yvie support Tom by helping him integrate in to the community and get involved in daily activities and responsibilities. Their home is vibrant and noisy thanks to their dogs, and they love grabbing some takeaway and a wine, while watching shows like GIRLS and The Bachelor Australia.
#TheSilberys to join the discussion
These three women - each from different generations - are a close and loving family, but aren't afraid to push each others' buttons! Grandma Emily or 'Emmie' is the voice of wisdom, but is young at heart. Like Grandma Emmie, her daughter Kerrie is living the single life - and the pair have recently moved back in together. This independent woman doesn't take any nonsense. The youngest of the Silbery family is Isabelle: a mother-of-one with a penchant for trashy TV.
