Monique worked at the Kinky Kat Club on Gas Street where dancers Pip Mistral and her friend Bettina were engaged as exotic dancers. With Bettina's birthday coming up, Pip arranged a party at their flat on Church Street and she tracked down old show business pal Charlie Moffitt to his digs at 5 Coronation Street and asked him to provide some men for the event.
Charlie got a very willing Len Fairclough, Harry Hewitt and Ken Barlow to join him and they made their way to the flat after a few pre-drinks at a pub on the way. The girls were delighted to see them but Charlie found himself the odd one out as the others paired off - Ken with Pip, Len with Monique and Harry with Bettina. While Ken and Pip chatted, the others danced. Harry, conscious of his married state, was studiously polite with Bettina while the divorced Len had no such inhibitions with Monique and pressed as close as he could, so much so that she had to tell him to scrape himself off her. She was in a good humour though and it wasn't long before the two were kissing. Their tryst was broken up by Charlie who was hungry and asked Bettina to make him a bacon sandwich and Monique helped her prepare food, much to Lens annoyance. The repast prepared, the four resumed their dancing which was again broken up when Charlie put on an impromptu cabaret with his trumpet.
Slightly the worse for wear, the four men left late at night, with both Ken and Harry returning to face the wrath of their wives who had realised that their cover story of a regimental reunion dinner was a total work of fiction.
