Sorrell buys herself a mobile phone and advertises herself on as Mandy, a latex and leather corseted call girl - who in reality is barely able to breathe in her outfit.

The first client is Leo, a dapper forty-something who appears less interested in sex than in talking about his late wife. Following some increasingly desperate attempts to get Leo into the bedroom, Sorrel eventually drags him in, telling Kelly to intervene if she screams. Unfortunately, Kelly mistakes Sorrel’s rather enthusiastic moaning for screaming and nearly knocks Leo out with a vase. Sorrel and Leo continue their transaction and after they finish,a well-satisfied Leo steps into the living room and promptly dies from a massive heart-attack.

Once Lynette has gone to bed, Sorrel and Kelly move Leo’s body from a hiding place and together they tip him over the balcony into the Thames below.
Two weeks pass and Sorrel and Kelly believe they have got away with it all; until the police arrive at the flat. They have traced Mandy via Leo’s computer and assume Lynette is Mandy. They ring a number advertised on Sorrel’s website and her mobile rings. Sorrel tries to explain but the police ignore her.

Despite no charges being pressed, Lynette is shunned by her neighbours and Sorrel is bullied at school. Together they prepare to escape to Doncaster, when a journalist arrives to persuade Lynette to sell her story. He makes an offer to which she adds a nought to the end.
