Excitable vet Sara and her daft friends spend a hellish night in the chilly ancestral home of her barking-mad life coach Toria. It turns out Toria’s hearty parents are as bonkers as she is, which is just as well as Toria wants Sara (Sue Perkins) to practise on them how she will come out as a lesbian to her own mum and dad. Toria’s family (motto “Kill Them All”), including Dawn French in a grey wig as Toria’s mum, is impertinently intrusive and the night is full of farcical misunderstandings as well as ghostly noises on the landing.
The friends head off to the country for a practice exercise in which Sara must come out to Toria's parents as a trial run for telling her own. Jamie and Justine share an intimate moment, while Toria is forced to face her own fears. Comedy, guest starring Dawn French, June Brown and Geoff McGivern.
