Nicola Brady is a 19-year-old barmaid from Birkenhead. She dreamed of being a model when she left school before being told she was too short. But today she gets a call from a model agency asking her to come in for a casting. Little does she know that she is about to become embroiled in a PR scam to rough up the clean cut image of Holby City heart throb Jeremy Edwards. Her day gets weirder when she is invited to the recording studio where Jeremy is recording a version of 'Ferry Cross the Mersey'. The song is great but it lacks something...Nicky. Jeremy begs her to do the backing singing and before she knows it she's shooting a live performance on a ferry crossing the Mersey.
