Further details

Time for another slice of Toast: Eponymous hero Steven Toast is back, living in the heart of Soho's theatre-land. With the misguided help of his inept agent Jane Plough and eccentric flatmate Ed, Toast continues his desperate attempts to get the love, respect and fame he adamantly thinks he deserves.

Celebrities and Prostitutes Blow Football Tournament is an annual event organised by Ed's showbiz charity, the River Rats. Toast enters and soon becomes obsessed with winning the tournament.

When his first choice, Mrs Purchase, declines his invitation to partner him - she decides instead to compete with her husband and Toast's arch-rival Ray Purchase - Toast instead turns to legendary prostitute/blow footballer Wendy Nook.
