Avoidance. Image shows from L to R: Jonathan (Romesh Ranganathan), Courtney (Lisa McGrillis)
Jonathan lies to Claire about finding a new place to live for him and Spencer, giving himself just four days to find a flat.

Further details

Jonathan and Spencer are still living at Danielle's, and tensions are rising - particularly with Courtney, who is not thrilled at having them there.

Claire arrives to drop Spencer off, and questions how appropriate it is for him to be sleeping in an office room, suggesting he spend more time with her.

Jonathan panics and lies, claiming he has found a flat for him and Spencer to live in. Meanwhile Spencer wants to audition for the school production of Cats, but Jonathan is afraid he will follow a similar fate as he once did in a school production of Joseph, where he was pranked and humiliated by his peers.

As Claire seems impressed Jonathan is finally pulling his life together, Jonathan is afraid his lie will be discovered.
