Beauty Calls (2015)

Film details


In the second episode, Toast's flatmate Ed (Bathurst) is dating Penvelope, a former beauty queen, and finalist from the famous international beauty contest for women they used to have in the 70s. Toast, who has been in a romantic slump, is rather excited to go on a double date with Penvelope's friend Clancy Moped (Sophie Colquhoun), a weather girl! Toast's budding romance with Clancy is thrown into jeopardy when he and Ed are asked to judge the international beauty contest for women, now driven underground due to the rise of feminism. It all starts to look a bit dodgy when they're collected by the host, Vic Titball (Paul Whitehouse) in his mud-spattered pick-up truck. ©Channel Four Publicity.
