A synopsis of the show, which consists of eight 30-minute episodes, states: “Heartstopper is the story of Charlie (Joe Locke) and Nick (Kit Connor) who meet at an all-boys school, become friends, and quickly discover a romance is blossoming between them. Over the series Charlie and Nick fall head over heels for each other.

“Along the way they realise there is a strong community of allies and friends around them, helping them to access their authentic selves, but also teaching them there is no ‘right way’ to come out.”
