Naive and downtrodden teacher Nick Brim (Tony Slattery) falls in love with winebar hostess Natalie (Rowena King) at first sight, at his brother’s works party.
However, being overdressed – because little brother Simon (Paul Bigley) has shrunk his other clothes in the wash – he is mistaken for a paid escort by the bosses wife, Marge (Wanda Ventham) and is unable to talk with Natalie that night.
When he loses his job teaching French at the local Comprehensive school, Simon persuades a reluctant Nick into life as a high-paid male escort – with the opportunistic Simon as his manager.
The series continues with Nick trying to initiate romance with Natalie while keeping his new job a secret from her.
