Show Summary
If not quite three-in-a-bed, this Granada sitcom cast three-in-a-bedsit, with newly-weds Chris and 'Fliss' (Felicity) Hawthorne sharing their sparsely furnished Chorlton-cum-Hardy accommodation with a lodger, Gavin, who calls himself Chris's best friend. The trouble is, while Chris is a young northern newspaper reporter, typing his fingers to the bone to pay off the mortgage, and living with his pretty bride - who has delivered them twins - with little more than two pennies to rub together, Gavin is a wealthy young air-freight executive used to the luxury life and lavish spending sprees. Forced to leave his matrimonial home when he splits from his wife Carol, Gavin moves his fancy furniture, Scalextrix, hi-fi, abundantly stocked wardrobe, drinks cabinet and fast cars chez Hawthorne, at first only for a couple of days but then, it seems, indefinitely. All together, Gavin behaves like a cad, flaunting his wealth and suggesting romance with the disinterested Fliss - who, herself, is wondering what has happened to her life: three A-levels to her name and she's up to her hands in nappy-rash cream. Also closely involved in Chris and Fliss's lives are their neighbour Austen Tweedale and Fliss's prudish, interfering and materially-obsessed mother Connie.
