My Life as a Popat follows the lives of an Indian family, through the eyes of their eldest son, Anand. The teenager fights a daily basis full of embarrassment. The second series brings a change to storyline, with brainbox Chetan Popat sometimes taking centre stage. Milli Patel (the Popats' cousin) also comes for the whole series.
My Life as a Popat was first not recommissioned after the second series due to CITV budget restrains. However, after the show won a BAFTA, a second series was commissioned.Laura Greenwood (Holly Saviour) was axed in the second series so (after a farewell appearance in the first episode) the character was written out. The new character of Lucy Miesels (played by Yasmin Paige) was introduced in the next episode.
Following further budget cuts to CITV My Life as a Popat was not recomissioned for a third series.
CITV made a My Life as a Popat game which can be found on the CITV website:
