Bob Norton (Series 1)
Bob is BuyMeUp TV's old and jaded male presenter. His hair is something of interest - everyone is convinced it is a wig, but he resolutely sticks to the story that all his hair is his own.
Bob appears to dislike most people - particularly fellow presenter Angela. Bob used to be in the RSC with Eamonn Holmes, not the Royal Shakespeare Company, Ready Steady Cook... Bob is still bitter to this day that Eamonn cheated to win.
Angela Bassett (Series 1)
Angela could sell ice the Eskimos, she is that good at selling. She sees Bob as a hindrance and wishes she could have the screen to herself.
Giles (Series 1)
Giles is the floor manager at the studios. The rest of the team think he looks like Kojak, or
an egg on a stick.
Poor naive Giles is lacking in self-esteem and assertiveness, and thus is pushed around by the rest of the staff. Angela particularly takes advantage because she knows that Giles has a crush on her and would do anything to please her.
Jacky Tanner (Series 1)
Tanner is the brash, ruthless American owner of the TV station. He will do anything to make sure the tat that BuyMeUp TV is advertising flies out of their warehouse.
