Eileen and Paula are accosted by a homeless lad at the local shops. Eileen is horrified that there are people down on their luck in her local area, and when she later meets another homeless man, Dave, she buys him a sandwich and invites him back to hers for a cup of tea.
Her hospitality quickly extends to a nice hot bath, an overnight stay and a complete overhaul of his wardrobe. Paula is horrified, thinking that this man is taking her mum for a ride, and family strife seems to be on the cards again...
Luckily for Eileen, both Paula and Ray are caught up in preparations for the imminent arrival of Mr Bunnington, the school rabbit, who's been sent to stay at their house in an attempt to cure Liam of his phobia of all things furry. Disaster strikes when the rabbit is kidnapped and held to ransom. Who can the Lewises turn to in this crisis, to rescue the rabbit and save the day?
