UK thriller Gold Digger premieres next Tuesday on Seven.

The plot centres around a wealthy 60-year-old woman who enters into a relationship with a man half her age but her adult children worry that he’s a gold digger.

The 6 part series screened in the UK in November.

The story focuses on a wealthy woman who falls in love with a much younger man and the impact this has on her already damaged family. Mother first, wife second, woman last – 60-year-old Julia (Ormond) has spent her whole life putting the needs of others before her own. Then she meets Benjamin (Barnes), a 30-something copywriter with a shrouded history. As the drama unfolds, the consequences of their relationship are explored, as devastating secrets from the past tear the family’s fragile bonds further apart. Has Julia finally found the happiness she’s always deserved? Or is the complex and enigmatic Benjamin really the gold digger her family think he is?

9pm Tuesday on Seven.
