Meet Zoe and Greg Milton, a married couple who have let themselves go a bit. Zoe was a stunner in her college days, but the intervening decades have added five stone, and removed most of her self-esteem. Greg's rugby-playing days are well and truly behind him, thanks to countless pints of beer and chicken curry. When Elise, a radio DJ and Zoe's best friend, tells them about a new competition, it seems like the perfect opportunity to turn their lives around.

It's a good story but the target audience must be teenagers - the humour is offensive in places and the performances are awful in places. I felt that I had to get to the end but in books you enjoy you rarely frown at the audio device!!
