Series 1, Episode 1 - The Scare
Barbara is convinced that Ken needs a health check-up and is horrified to discover that she is the one the doctors are interested in. She suspects the worst and is determined to fulfil some lifetime ambitions recruiting Mary and Ken into her misguided plans.
Ever-dramatic Barbara makes a bucket list after being told she has high-blood pressure. The list includes her recreating Marilyn Monroe's famous scene in the Seven Year Itch by standing on a chair in her white terry dressing gown as mate Mary blows a hairdryer up her robe. Refusing to accept her ill-health "born busy" Barbara even challenges her doctor to star jumps and shuttle runs.
