So this upcoming trip to Majorca is a big deal. Sophie’s spent a lot of time getting ready. She’s bought a new wardrobe. She’s been waxed to within an inch of her life. She’s determined she and Callum will have the best time ever.
Then Callum dumps her, the night before they’re due to leave. In a show of bravery, Sophie says she’ll go to Majorca alone – but in fact, she hides in her London flat. But when her friends, family, and even Callum seem so surprised and delighted at her independence, Sophie decides to go all out and recreate the ultimate ‘fake break’ . . . with hilarious results.
