Review by:

Steve has a masterplan, which isn’t saying much because he’s hardly giving a Bond villain a run for their money. His ruse is to pretend to split up with Michelle in the hope that Tracy will immediately lose interest in Ryan. But as he schemes away, eye-rolling and gurning for all he’s worth, the bond between Ryan and his cougar girlfriend is only strengthening. To the point where a ring is being purchased.

Matters are no less fraught at the café where Mary’s French night is causing ructions. This is merely a guess, but surely treating her neighbours to all this new food is playing merry hell with their digestive systems.

About this programme

Steve confides in Lloyd that dumping Michelle is just a ruse to split up Ryan and Tracy, but when he discovers Rob has taken his girlfriend to the Bistro to comfort her he worries that his plan has gone sadly awry. Nick refuses to give Lewis his old job back and Gail voices her suspicion that he and Penny are in cahoots. How will Audrey react? Anna finally snaps when Mary decides to transform Roy and Hayley's flat into an upstairs dining area for her French night, while Mandy and Lloyd's relationship develops.
