Crystal Hennessy-Vass announces that the staff budget is being cut by half - and Joyce is being replaced by somebody cheaper.

When Joyce returns to the hotel, she discovers that her predecessor Janey has taken her job.

As The Oracle's Romanian fiancee Ionela arrives in Benidorm, Noreen discovers that Geoff/The Oracle has told her he is a successful businessman. He has even booked the Solana's honeymoon suite for their first night together.

Glynn wants Jacqueline to join him in a performance at Neptune's, but as a singer she is hopeless. Then Glynn bumps into local bar singer Annie Redmond and realises that the night will be a success after all.

Inspired by a pep-talk from Crystal, Kenneth and Liam launch a Blow and Go makeover competition - which attracts some very unlikely entrants indeed.
