Sir Galahad comes in many guises, and in the case of beautiful model Lorraine Watts he's in the form of Charles Latimer, a Conservative MP who saves her from the unwelcome attentions of a lecherous photographer.

While Charles is an aristocrat and Lorraine is a Cockney born and bred, the difference in their social stations fails to put the brake on their express dash into romance... although it promises to be a bumpy journey!
