Storyline

Richard is about to sign a lucrative deal with cosmetics firm boss Mademoiselle Dutoit but,to fend off her advances,has claimed he has a wife. When Marjory volunteers to impersonate 'her' for Dutoit's weekend stay a previously reluctant Audrey is quick to jump in and use the masquerade to have a few alterations made to the estate as the rightful lady of the manor. Richard's mother almost ruins the deception but Mademoiselle Dutoit owns that she has known all along and is impressed by Audrey's apparent assumption of an alien role. Written by don @ minifie-1
