Episode two tells the story of young, party-loving Tracy Shawcross, JS Motors’ receptionist. Yearning for a luxurious lifestyle of designer clothes and glamour, Tracy is determined to find a way out of her mundane life.
She believes she has found the answer when she starts a relationship with local DJ, Jimmy. When he offers an all-expenses-paid trip to the Caribbean for her and fellow receptionist Viv, it appears the pair have finally got the chance to sample the lavish lifestyle they crave.
Lying to not arouse suspicion, Tracy and Viv tell everyone that they are flying to Ibiza for a week of partying. In reality, they board a plane to the Dominican Republic where flights and accommodation have been arranged by Jimmy. However, upon their arrival, it’s soon revealed that there is more than meets the eye about the idyllic getaway.
Meanwhile, Beth’s suspicions continue to grow after she discovers that her husband’s mysterious late night calls were from his colleague Marianne. When confronted Marianne stubbornly denies her involvement, but Beth remains unconvinced.
