British (Offensive) Terminology/Terms of Endearment

So, I'm writing this fic that centers around a British character on an American show, and I am not quite sure how to search for the specific information that I need. The story involved a very abusive relationship with an extreme power imbalance. The purpose of the language I'm looking for is for the abuser to make the victim feel worthless and powerless. He has complete authority, the power of life or death, over his unwilling partner, who is for all intents and purposes his slave.

And what I'm needing to know is, what would a British male character call another British male character that would be the equivalent of an American male calling another male his "bitch", and also the equivalent of calling him a whore or a slut?

I am considering also having the abuser call the victim by a term of endearment/pet name. If he was American, I'd use "baby" or "sweetheart" - something that can go either way, either be genuinely affectionate, or patronizing and degrading. Would "love" work for a British character? Or something else? What would you suggest?

Thanks so much for any help y'all can provide with this. :)

*hugs*
