A feminist writer snags herself a Chelsea flat but has to take in flatmates to help pay the bills

Amanda Ripley, a feminist writer for the women’s magazine ‘Spare Cheeks’ lucks into an apartment in Kensington.

In order to pay the rent to Lady Carlton, the crazy romance novelist (with a stuffed pet dog named Josephine) who lives downstairs and owns the flat, she has to take in Shelley DuPont, a loud-mouthed American actress; Jennifer Marsh, a retarded friend from childhood; and Candice Valentine, the ‘slut’ who previously lived there and has nowhere else to go.
