Nearest And Dearest
Click Image to Enlarge
When their father dies, brother and sister Eli and Nellie Pledge find themselves in charge of the family pickle empire. But they're as different as chalk and cheese.
Eli is a leering lecher who'll chase anything in a skirt, while his sister is a daft old spinster with old-fashioned morals.
Eli wants out of the business to booze and chase women, but he can't leave until Nellie is wed. And the prospects of that happening are pretty poor.
So when Eli meets a rival pickle magnate on holiday in Blackpool who just happens to be a bachelor, the wheels in his mind start to turn. Suddenly he's playing cupid
to the most unlikely love match in Lancashire...
Starring the original cast from the smash hit TV Series, Nearest And Dearest is a romp every bit as hot and spicy as Pledge's Purer Pickles!
