Vince first met Penny at a Rolling Stones concert in the summer of 1976. They had a two year relationship and were about to get married when Vince got cold feet and left her waiting at the church. Five years later they chance to bump into each other again and Penny lets Vince know exactly what she thinks of him. After the dust has settled they both decide to remain friends but it's not long before the old feelings return and their love-hate, on-off relationship is re-established.
