Summary and Cast

Gilly’s Gem is a comedy set in a block of flats in London. Millie and Peggy, both live-in cleaners, are best friends and rely on each other for support when dealing with their lady bosses.

Millie’s boss is a kind and wealthy woman who is very fond of Gilly, even though she knows that Millie and Peggy help themselves to the Gin when she’s away, that her cleaning leaves much to be
desired, and that her cooking is awful. Millie is very protective of her lovely, rather naïve boss.

The fun starts when Gilly introduces Millie to her new prospective boyfriend, Toby, who she says he is an antiques dealer, and wants her to invest some money in his business….except that he’s not.
