Bella, from Birmingham – Wannabe novelist
A bit arty, a bit hippy, a bit unrealistic but so, so talented, darling. Who said flower power was dead?
Charlie, from Chatham – Wannabe playboy
Can charm the birds from the trees but somehow they always fly away again. When he looks in the mirror he sees not Charlie, but James Bond with bling.
Delia, from Dedham – Businesswoman, and how
They call her The Dragon behind her back. The type of man who found Mrs Thatcher attractive would swoon over Delia, before she kicked him where it hurts.
Ernie, from Eccles – Supergeek
Took up DIY because stamp collecting was too exciting. He had a big problem knowing what to wear for the show: should it be his white over-alls, or his blue over-alls?
Fiona, from Falmouth – Vegetarian busybody
Journalist, smallholder, workaholic. Even when she’s dressed to kill she looks like she’s just come out of the garden.
Graham, from Gretna – Hey, Rambo, make my day – macho man with a grudge
He’s left the army Special Forces but he’s still one tough guy.
