Karl Howman

Three girlies and their 'laddish' neighbour all live in St John's Wood. Lamentable ITV sitcom from 1998 starring Karl Howman (the geezer from the Flash ads who was Jacko in equally pathetic 1980s comedy Brush Strokes). The 'babes' included a pre-EastEnders Samantha Janus and Denise Van Outen. It had absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever. About as funny as nailing your own foot to the floor.
