When two young, attractive girls, Chrissy and Jo, search for a third sharer to help pay the rent on their Earl's Court flat, they intended on finding another female. But they reconsider when they meet young Robin Tripp, a catering student whom they discover asleep in their bath the morning after a party.

It just so happens that Robin is on the look out for somewhere local to rent, and so he tries to win the girls over with his wit and charm; but it's his culinary skills that make him the dish of the day as far as Chrissy and Jo are concerned!

This innocent ménage à trois understandably raises a few eyebrows, particularly with their landlords, George and Mildred Roper, who live downstairs.
