Welcome to Mel and Vicki’s flat. You’ll have to excuse the noise and the constant interruptions.

What with those dirty Sloanes next door, the men’s group meeting upstairs and the stay-at-home dads, we can hardly hear the phone ring – and it could well be Mel’s agent offering her a role in something tasteful.

Luckily Leslie, the show’s resident announcer, is on hand to keep things moving and to introduce the variety aspect of the show: perhaps a tap dance, or Armed Forces sweetheart Edie Trinder, or maybe just one of the celebrity voices in Mel’s head.

Written and performed by Mel Hudson and Vicki Pepperdine with Martin Hyder, Jim North, Dave Lamb and Jessica Martin.
