Drama series. After having spent 8 years in exile in Greece, after being outed out of control of her chain of boutiques, Connie returns to Britain determined to reclaim what she sees as rightfully hers.

Penniless, she joins fashion house The House of Bea and quickly sets about reclaiming her place as fashion queen of the UK.

Star Stephanie Beacham was brilliant in the main role of super bitch Connie, so good in fact that it led to her scoring a prominent role on US supersoaps The Colbys and Dynasty.
