Part of the
British Comedy Collection
Gimme Gimme Gimme is about two people who share a flat. The first, Linda, is a loud-mouthed middle-aged woman in her 'twenties'. Unlike the world around her, she sees herself as 'gawjus!', and thinks that men can't resist her charms. Her flatmate, Tom, is a gay. He believes that he is a gifted actor, but he never seems to get much work, barring the odd walk-on role, or corny advert.
