Other favourites include die-hard romantic Elaine Figgis, and her worldwide search for love; Paul and Sam in their endlessly hysterical life; Kate and Ellen, the bickering work colleagues; Bernie the inappropriate Irish nurse; Vern and Irene with their burger van, and of course, not forgetting Derek Faye - the modern gentleman bachelor.
