“I met my husband in the queue to board an easyJet flight and I have to say I took an instant dislike to the man.”

An unexpected meeting at an airport leads to an intense, passionate, head-over-heels relationship. Before long they begin to settle down, buy a house, juggle careers, have kids – theirs is an ordinary family. But then their world starts to unravel and things take a disturbing turn.

“I don’t remember exactly when things with us started to go properly wrong – I just remember suddenly finding myself in it.”
