Gavin has a new holiday companion in the form of his employee from his salon, Kenneth. With Troy back home tending to his sick father, Gavin tries desperately to stick to his low carb diet as Kenneth tries to polish off as much free food as he can get.

Solana regulars, The Garveys arrive for a stay with Madge at her luxury villa. But when they find the villa's been sold to none other than Cilla Black, the hunt for Madge begins with some unexpected results.

It's all change at the pool bar when Mateo is introduced to his new work mate Les... who has a few surprises up his/her sleeve.

And there's a whiff of a potential holiday romance for Les's son, Liam who's besotted by a girl, Natalie but her friend Sam has other ideas.
