Follows a day in the life of best friends Jenny and Sharron, two working class girls making ends meet working on the cosmetics counter of a bustling high end departmental haven. Encountering daily the widest range of customers, from the aspiring plain Jane to the all-conquering entourage of WAGs, Jenny longs for escape and fulfillment. As mistress to a premier league superstar, she has tough decisions to make, whilst girl-next-door Sharron battles to retain her friend and control her own reciprocated and forbidden affections towards a new colleague. Added to the mix is an array of adulterous males, scandal, and fading hopes of lasting happiness. All of which is lorded over by an acidic queen, and played out against the backdrop of a red carpet fashion launch extravaganza.
Lizzie Cundy is a regular guest on daytime TV, giving her opinion on everything from divorce to botox. As a former WAG - she was married for 16 years to a professional footballer. Pippa Fulton, who recently became engaged to Brentford FC's highest goalscorer Clayton Donaldson, is a singer, actress and dancer, who first found success after being chosen from 30,000 applicants to appear on BBC 1’s Fame Academy.
