Any chance that the water running down the plug hole is bringing up the smell?

Are you sure it`s not a chlorine bleach smell?
The water in our area is renown for it`s excessive chlorine smell..
Failing that , as someone else has suggested, it might be something nasty in your cold water header tank in the loft or top of the airing cupboard ( which feeds the hot water tank)
