Pip is actually quite posh, in spite of all the evidence. Her family tree has been uncovered during a house move. It details her ancestry back to her great-great-great-grandparents. Pip’s real name is Spanwise Strawberry but her ancestors rejoice in names like Tobias of Todgrove, Tundergarth Bonny Border, Careycourt Buggler, Tipalts Scots Lass of Dandyhow and Uncle Walter of Dandyhow.
There are some disappontments in there. Fanny Hill was obviously a bit of rough the family would rather not talk about. Oxcroft Rocker surely caught Crackling Rose on a bad night. Hollowmoor Duty Free almost certainly found a dodgy way of entering the country in the back of a van driven by two blokes from Chelmsford. The least said about Hollybridge Simply Red, the better, although it might explain why Pip looks like she was beaten lightly with the ginger stick.
But the real skeleton in the cupboard is that the pair Tobias of Todgrove and Hollybridge Banshee were her grandparents AND great-great-great-grandparents. The dirty dogs.
