On May 1, 2001, 40-year-old Jonathan Maitland decided to attempt to fulfill a lifetime's ambition. To this effect, he placed a bet on himself at William Hill, at 50 to 1, that he would have a Number One hit single in the music charts by the end of 2002. The only thing standing in his way? A complete lack of natural musical talent. This is the hilarious and - at times - heartbreaking tale of Jonathan Maitland and his 'heroically average' band, Surf 'n'Turf's single-minded quest for pop stardom. A quest that will lead them from weddings and bar mitzvahs to the possibility of reaching Estonia in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest. Will he - or won't he - hit that Number One slot?
