Lured by a bargain-basement price, Lee (Lee Mack) books a skiing holiday for three - a skinflint move he regrets the minute he, Daisy and Lucy step foot inside a cable car to take them to the top of the mountain. As claustrophobia, old-time puns and squeamish humour kick in, we're halfway up a slippery slope which sees Lee at 'the business end' of things when heavily pregnant fellow cable-car passenger (Pooky Quesnel) realises her waters have broken.

The best image in tonight's instalment is of Lee Mack hanging upside-down from a pair of skis.

This is another episode that asks itself "What's the smallest space we could use for an entire 30 minutes?" before deciding to go with a cable car.

Lee, Lucy and Daisy go skiing and if you think their clothes look like they were found in the back room of a 1970s thrift shop, the set-up is even more old fashioned.

The cable car gets stuck (their fault, naturally) and there's an angry, heavily pregnant eastern European woman on board (Pooky Quesnel) who's about to go into labour. To add to the fun, Lucy has both her arms in plaster casts, which makes you wonder how she applied her eye make-up.

The one-liners ricochet around that cable car at such a rate that you'll probably forgive the predictability of their plight.
