Further details

The Nichols family gather together as Alison, Stephen's ex and the family lawyer, reveals what's in Laurie's will. A horrified Stephen finds out that Andrew has been left a 5 per cent share of the family business, the John Barleycorn pub. With the business in debt, Stephen and Andrew go head to head to find the best way to make some extra cash.
