He called Fitness UK Ltd to askfor the spa break but they told him that the advertisement was not to be taken seriously. They also told him that in any case they had distributed flyers in localgyms and parks stating that they had withdrawn the earlier offer. On telling his colleagues at work what had happened, Edward?s colleague Caroline Long told him thatshe had also bought the app, having heard from a friend how good it was.

An hour later she received an email from Charlie saying he would like to come and see the machine. When Charlie came to see the machine they recognised eachother and realised that Charlie is a friend of Annie?s ex-boyfriend Jack.

Annie said she could not wait that long but that she would keep the offeropen for five days.
