turn the water off at the hot water tank. If you don't have a gate valve to turn it off or have a combi boiler (no hot water tank) turn the mains cold water off and it will stop (if its a hot water tank it may take 15min). Then wait for a plumber or go buy a new tap and have a bash yourself :D

offer a plumber a look @ some of your photos of your girlfriends .. work everytime . . best thing to do DD is get 2 flexi conectors to supply the taps . theses come with inline valves to shut the water off if you ever have problems like you have encountered .
b&q and wickes sell them !! look like goodridge hose .

get speed fit connectors. cut pipe clean, push on , pull back a tad, job done. b&q sell them. no solder, no spanners, no leaks. brilliant. oh and no plumbers bill.
