Birds of a Feather
In 1992 I joined the Birds of a Feather writing team. My episode Wipe That Smile Off Your Tape revolved around Sharon joining a video dating agency in an effort to find a bit of fun and excitement with a new man.

She meets Mike who has backstage passes for a Rolling Stones concert at Wembley. However Tracey is far more keen for Sharon to date a shy flying instructor called Jimmy Bond and sets up a date for her sister behind her back.

Unfortunately when the big night arrives, Jimmy mistakes Sharon for Dorien and the Essex girls are forced to spend yet another night in on their own.
