Bouquets of flowers, boxes of chocolates, and a dodgy phone call, only serve to make matters worse; but he still asks her to marry him before she sets off to spend the day with her parents. Greg decided to travel to an address in Buckinghamshire, which he found on a cigarette packet, where he will surprise both Ginny and her doting mum and dad. But it is he who is surprised...
