Series 8, Episode 1
The Solana welcomes the Dawson family for the first time and Grandad Eddie is already causing trouble when he nearly drowns his own granddaughter. His son Billy and daughter-in-law Sheron are not best pleased.
Tiger brings along a new pal, Joey - who has never been abroad before. Though not the sharpest knife in the box himself, Tiger looks like a Nobel prizewinner alongside the uniquely dim-witted but essentially friendly Joey.
Joyce Temple-Savage is on the look-out for a new member of staff. She must choose between the efficient Amber and the completely incapable - but outrageously flirtatious - Marcus.
Troy is welcomed back to the Costa and his first day is spent saying goodbye to Donald as he, Jacqueline and Kenneth scatter the big man's ashes over his favourite holiday destination.
