In sitcom Constant Hot Water Phyllis Nugent runs the Portofino Guest House in Bridlington, Yorkshire. All is going well until Miranda Thorpe opens a rival guest house right next door.
Phyllis is convinced that Miranda is something of a “loose woman” and her arrival lowers the tone of the whole area.
Something of a last hurrah for Pat Phoenix Constant Hot Water turned out to be more of a cold shower.
