Bella was the tutor in a keep-fit beginners' belly-dancing class run at V Court Fitness. Kate and Maria Connor signed up, paying the £5 entrance fee. Bella introduced herself, and as Maria instantly commented, Kate found her attractive as her eyes "popped out of her head". As the class came out of the gym later on, Maria was in some pain while Kate had managed the exercises with ease. Coming up to Victoria Street towards them was Caz Hammond, Kate's jealous girlfriend, who didn't like the look of the teacher, or the obvious enjoyment Kate had found in Maria's company.
