Further details

When long-term crush Gary Preston returns from his travels, Miranda bumps into him and, anxious not to make one of her usual conversational cock-ups, talks all about her Olympic gymnastic achievements and her two children, Orlando and Bloom. Surely everyone ends up lying to impress when they're nervous, don't they?

After an impromptu "date" is planned, Miranda decides to "Trinny and Susannah" herself, and takes a trip to the new "bespoke" clothing store, Transformers, picking an outfit guaranteed to stop people calling her sir to her face.

A reluctant lunch with newly engaged Sloane Ranger school friends Tilly and Fanny leads to a wedding dress shopping bonanza and leaves Miranda looking like she's had a chiffon-based anaphylactic shock, witnessed by a delighted Penny and rather terrified Gary.
