Josh is the ringleader and moral compass of the group. Riddled with insecurities, he makes decisions driven mostly by a deep sense of worry and anxiety. Out of the four, he’s the one most affected and most tortured by the money, and most aware of how differently he’s perceived by his peers. His relationship with ex-girlfriend Abi defines his series arc as he desperately tries to negotiate their complicated relationship through the millionaire’s prism. As he becomes increasingly fixated on her and his relationship with Leon fractures, an opportunity to leave it all behind may make Josh walk away from the gang forever.
