The Garveys are alarmed by rumours of a gang kidnapping the unwary and stealing their organs, so when Michael sees a tall dark stranger bundling Madge into a car, they are convinced she is a victim.

Still after a fourth star for the Solana, Joyce invites Victor St James of Costa Class magazine to visit and she instructs Mateo to cook an authentic Spanish paella. Les agrees to help and sends Liam out to buy the ingredients. But things start to go wrong when he brings back a live chicken, which he christens Meryl.

Trudy tries to be ladylike for 24 hours in order to win a bet with Sam, and Donald and Jacqueline plug into a new app connecting them to other swingers in the area.

When the Garveys eventually find Madge, the tall dark stranger turns out to be Mohammed, an old friend of Mel's - and he may have some very good news for all of them.

Victor St James is not quite as classy as Joyce had expected. And who will be the organ robbers' next victim?
