The Solana's new manageress - Joyce Temple-Savage is organising a dance competition for the guests. Everyone is eager to take part, and rehearsals are supervised by an old flame of Joyce's - TV's Cyril Babcock (guest star Matthew Kelly) - an ageing star whose impatience with the talent-lite contestants leads to a dance-off with smouldering Mateo.

Kenneth hires a drab assistant for his salon whose minimal knowledge of hair-dressing and the English language leads to an unfortunate accident with her first client - Solana guest Mr Dixon. Kenneth tries to cheer up Gavin - who's sorely missing partner Troy, but Gavin's very reluctant to take part in the dance competition (though Kenneth has a good idea who his partner could be).

Janice is shocked to see Jack at the pool bar. Jack made her heart skip a beat several years before, and nearly ruined Madge's wedding to Mel. When she confronts him, he seems not to know her. What's he playing at? And will Mick turn up in time to prevent a nasty scene? As Noreen boogies with Mateo, and Liam jives with Trudy - the drama unfolds.
