After an act in which a lion attacks some dancers his wife Jean (Anna Friel) takes part in the show. TheDaily Sketch claims that she performed nude and sued them unsuccessfully. Despite this setback the ensuing publicity allows Raymond to launch his strip club the Raymond Revue Bar. The success of his club allows him to expand his property empire and also indulge in a playboy lifestyle which his wife tolerates.
