On the face of things, Queenie Jenkins' (Dionne Brown) lot isn't half bad. She's a young Londoner with a tight-knit group of friends working as a journalist at a national newspaper. One messy breakup later, however, she's back in the ends living in her grandparents' spare room, and not liking the person she's become.

Below, we've broken down how you can watch "Queenie" online from anywhere with a VPNand potentially for free.

Partying past the pain isn't quite so appealing when you can't make it through the door without sending Grandma Veronica (Llewella Gideon) and Grandad Wilfred (Joseph Marcell) into fits of hysteria, and so Queenie finds herself at a crossroads.

Does she continue down the path she's on, striving to fit in with her predominantly white, middle-class colleagues, in the hope of climbing the corporate ladder, or does she actually try to do something about her grandiose ambitions of changing the world?

There to keep her grounded are her old school pals, straight-talking best friend Kyazike (Bellah) and man with a van and big plans Frank (Samuel Adewunmi), who might not have hit the same professional heights as Queenie, but never forgot where he came from.

An eight-part comedy-drama based on Candice Carty-Williams' best-selling novel, read on as we explain where to watch "Queenie" online and from anywhere.
