Episode two delved deeper into Kate (Jill Halfpenny) and Sean's (Owen McDonnell) troublesome marriage after she discovered messages that indicated he was having an affair with one of her friends – but it seems viewers at home picked up one a plot detail they found confusing.

Taking to social media, audiences were quick to ask why the group of friends had taken a holiday together as there is clearly a lot of bad blood between them. One person tweeted: "#TheHoliday these couples shouldn't be on holiday together, they don't seem to like each other."

Another agreed, adding: "Clearly none of them get on with one another anymore, so why don't they just save everyone the agro and [go] home? #TheHoliday." A third wrote: "So predictable, characters that appear to hate each other even though they're on holiday together, and a lot of scenes where [nothing] happens.... #TheHoliday Am I going to watch the rest of it?...probably."

Tensions arose between the friends in episode two

Meanwhile, a fourth also had plenty of questions: "I love Jill Halfpenny but why is she so paranoid about her husband? Why did she go on this holiday to be suspicious about her friends? All the women are self-obsessed. All the men are just weird. All the kids seem to have mental health problems. #TheHoliday."

The series has been adapted to TV from the best-selling thriller book of the same name by T.M. Logan, meaning viewers can witness the picturesque, Mediterranean views on screen – despite the gritty plot.

As well as Jill Halfpenny and Owen McDonnell, the cast consists of: Lara McDonnell, Aidan McCann, Liv Mjönes and Cat Simmons.
