They cohabit in free accommodation, so there's ample opportunity for conflict, pranks and love affairs among each-other as well as affairs with 'clients'. However Stuart, the boss of the proppers from rival nightclub Empire, is not content just competing, so he tries to play dirty tricks on our bunch, which spices some story lines.
