Girls on Top (1985–86)
A feminist writer snags herself a Chelsea flat but has to take in flatmates to help pay the bills.


Oh horror! Oh Calamity! Oh Jennifer! She who is lacking in almost everything, plumbs new depths when she takes Josephine, Lady Carlton’s stuffed black dog, for a walk and promptly loses her in a shop. The girls plan various schemes including a stuffed coypu, and giving Lady Carlton a message ‘from heaven’ by a teddy bear, which is supposed to be Josephine, transformed into an angel.

This was the final appearance of Tracey Ullman as Candice Valentine.
