Despite having tried every fad diet going, Edina is still desperate to be thin. All she wants is to be able to take her clothes off and not be marked by them. The answer is detox.
Spurred on by a Sex And The City-style lunch with her bitchy girlfriends, Edina embarks on a strict regime of water and red meat and enrols herself in a gruelling British Military Fitness programme.
Despite Patsy’s best efforts, Eddy eschews champagne and begins to shed the pounds. But her nights are plagued with visits from God and the devil, who have their own agendas.
Meanwhile, budding playwrite Saffy bumps into a pretentious old school friend, Taylor Johns, who attempts to use her in his bid to further his acting career. Patsy decides to see what life is like without her trademark Sixties forelock.
