Speaking direct to camera girl about town Fleabag recounts her day starting with a one night stand with a strange request and a bus pick-up to whom she explains how she split from boyfriend Harry. After being refused a bank loan she meets - and argues yet again - with sister Claire at a feminist lecture before visiting estranged Dad and Godmother - whom he married with indecent haste on widowhood and not Fleabag's favourite person - helping a drunk woman and pleasuring herself in a taxi after the bus rodent has failed to fulfil his promise.

But even though the camera's not necessarily judging her she thinks it is, so that's why she's constantly having to be like "Give a shit?" and crying her eyes out when she looks away. See more
You know that thing when a guy sends you a text at two o'clock on a Tuesday night asking if he can come and find you and you've accidentally made it out like you've just got in yourself so you have to get out of bed, drink half a bottle of wine, get in the shower, shave everything, dig out some Agent Provocateur business, suspender belt the whole bit and wait by the door til the buzzer goes?
