Series 2, Episode 2 - Sweet Smell Of Success
Tracey and Dorien have a gym session and discuss their husbands and their financial situations. Marcus has locked away Dorien's credit cards and she isn't happy.
Dorien tries to convince Tracey into selling Darryl's Jaguar car, but she sees red.
Lisa, Sharon's old neighbour turns up in a flashy car, offering both Sharon and Tracey the chance to sell Aromantique perfume through a pyramid scheme and make a fortune.
Their first day selling gets off to a decent start, by the second they start to argue, Tracey doesn't sell any bottles, Sharon has got rid of all of her Aromantique, by throwing it all in the canal.
Finally realising that she has no choice, Tracey puts Darryl's Jag on Computer Car for £20,000 ONO. Dorien offers £15,000 which Tracey refuses. They soon have an interested party. After helping him put his folding bike into the boot he drives off with the log book and throws a business card out of the window.
The car has been repossessed.
When visiting Darryl, Tracey tells him that she needs money urgently. She mentions the car, but doesn't tell him it has been repossessed. He warns her never to sell the car. He tells her where he has £25,000 stashed away, unfortunately for Tracey it's in the spare tyre of the Jaguar.
They go to the car dealership and ask about part exchanging their remaining car against the Jaguar, but before the deal is sealed, someone else makes a phone call and buys the car from under their noses.
Back at home and downtrodden, Dorien arrives and begins to make apologies. She admits that she has bought the Jaguar, leading to Sharon and Tracey to run outside, throw Doriens shopping from the boot and run off with the spare tyre, much to Dorien's amusement.
