What a great idea! Let’s put Betty, the brain-dead secretary from Hey Dad! – and arguably the most irritating character ever to appear in an Aussie sitcom – into a block of flats (the ‘Hampton Court’ of the title) with four young people who are sharing their first flat – and one of the flatmates is a single mother bringing up a baby.
Betty helped the four – Lisa (Danielle Spencer), the mother of the baby; girl-chasing Richard (Adam Willits); Sophie (Maxine Klibingaitis), a mistake-prone blonde; and Trevor (Rod Zuanic) – keep baby Sam a secret from their meddling landlord, Mr Colloudos (Roy Billing), a cheapskate Greek immigrant whose (never seen) dragon of a wife has a strict “no babies in the building” rule.
