Chat show in the tradition of Mrs Merton and The Kumars, starring creator Gemma Whelan as porcelain-skinned, generously-bejewelled socialite Chastity Butterworth.

A delicious flirt and doyenne of the double entendre, Chastity and her faithful butler, Roger, invite listeners to one of her legendary social soirées at her country house, Butterworth Hall. Endlessly fascinated by everyone and everything, Chastity's breathless cut-glass purr gives her interviews a unique blend of naïve enthusiasm, warm seduction and infectious humour.

Chastity and the over-excited Roger have an odd-couple relationship that reveals Chastity's perfect life is less than perfect...

Her guests are Charles Dance OBE (Gemma's fellow Game Of Thones cast member), comedian Joe Lycett, and Lady Colin Campbell.
