Series 1, Episode 4 - Going Home

Things have come to a head for Guy. He has lost his job, he's running out of money and, most worrying of all, his 11 year old imaginary friend, Hennikay, is still a very permanent - and annoying - fixture in his life. No matter how hard he tries to persuade him that he doesn't exist, he just can't get him to leave. And so in a last-ditch attempt to understand why his old friend has returned from his childhood and just what he wants, Guy decides to go back home to where it all started and see his Mum - who unfortunately for him, is not imaginary.
