Hot Money (ITV-1 2001, Caroline Quentin, Melanie Hill)

Published

on

Hot Money is a fictionalised account of a real-life case involving a trio of cleaners at the Bank of England’s incinerating plant. They plan to steal thousands of pounds of old banknotes – by stashing them in their knickers and bras. Caroline Quentin leads the pack as Brigit, with Liz (Melanie Hill) and Jackie (Georgia MacKenzie) her partners in crime. Can the unlikely crooks succeed in making the biggest cash withdrawal of their lives?

Memorable moment: The tense scene where Brigit and co frantically stuff the cash into their undies, and try not to get caught.

Trivia: One of Caroline Quentin’s early performances was in the chorus of the original cast of Les Misérables in 1985. She was famously married to comedian Paul Merton for eight years, before they divorced in 1998.
