Thomas and Sarah go their separate ways...
3 August 2010 | by See all my reviews


Travelling in the Rolls that once belonged to the Bellamy's, Thomas and Sarah inadvertently get swept along to a 'Servant's Ball' when they run out of petrol and bump into some party-goers!

All seems to be going well whilst Sarah is adept at the 'posh' accent - until that is, a friend of the Bellamy's at the party recognises Thomas as the one-time Chauffeur from Eaton Place! Instead of exposing him, she decides to seduce him into being unfaithful to Sarah.

Eventually Sarah is led to believe that Thomas has left the Ball without her and subsequently has to hitch a lift to Bristol.
