    When Belle is spotted with a politician, a journalist tries to blackmail her. And then there's Bambi, a girl who could become an escort as well.

    Thursday 10pm on ITV2

    Me as well. I like that we're getting some more characters for Belle to interact besides Ben and her former Madam.

    Nice episode. I liked the interaction with the viewer "I missed you". A good start into the new season. I love this show.

    I thought this was excellent in everything. A lot of shows have to go through the difficult second album syndrome but this seemed perfect.

    The show's awareness of everything is great. Belle is right about what people are doing to themselves, in her case obviously literally.

    The mix up at the hotel was interesting. Client Alex wanting her to pee on him reminded me of that politician who wanted Carrie to do the same to her in Sex And The City's third season.

    The journalist (actor who plays him) is gonna be more famous for his EastEnders role but he was a delight in goading Belle. I wonder why he did use another hooker to leak the story. Chances of seeing him again are possible.

    The christening was fine, given that I don't really care for Belle's family. The sequence where she thought of telling everyone her real job made me laugh. Knocking the glass of petals was predictable. The flower gesture was nice.

    Ben is still with Vanessa? I can't imagine why. The woman seems too controlling and Ben doesn't seem to actually love her. Besides we still haven't even met her anyway.

    Bambi could be a fun character to watch, though her eagerness is a tad annoying. I like Alex but I always had a soft spot for Dead Like Me. It will be interesting to see Belle balance her job and a real relationship, 9/10.
