Jack and Cass Mandeville are a dream couple, ridiculously happy together and successful to boot - Jack as a journalist and Cass with her own hugely popular radio show. Indeed, almost every member of the Mandeville family is famous in their own right: from stunning Cleo, a supermodel with attitude, to Sean, the rising star of the comedy circuit. Incredibly good-looking and likeable, the family have captured the hearts of the nation - and the nation's press. But on the day that Jack hits the big 40 - the same day that a redhead called Imogen turns up to interview Jack and Cass for Hi! magazine - their proverbial bubble is about to burst...

Jack, rolling over onto his back, proddedher in the ribs. ‘Im forty.’‘I know, but it doesn’t rhyme.’ Cass proddedhim back. ‘And forty’s quite shameful enough.Should an old man like you be lying in bed nakedanyway? Are you sure you wouldn’t be morecomfortable wearing stripy pyjamas and a stringvest?’Jack pinched the tender flesh at the top of her thigh.
