When Baby Jesus contaminates the swimming pool with weedkiller, the guests have to be evacuated.

Further details

When Baby Jesus contaminates the swimming pool with weedkiller, the guests have to be evacuated. The chips are down as Crystal Hennessey-Vass pressures Joyce to sort things out pronto. Joyce hastily arranges a trip to the circus, but circus manager Andre fails to tell her that the acts are not available.

Mateo surprises Joyce with his linguistic skills as they try to put a show together. Bean, the resident clown and old friend of Mateo, comes to the rescue. A fabulous show is pulled off and Monty uses all his connections to get the hotel re-opened in record time - but is it enough to keep Crystal happy?

Joyce needs a show-stopping act for Neptunes to save her job, and Jacqueline suggests some friends who are in town. Monty hopes to gain further approval by getting his nephew to do a number, as he has a very important question to ask Joyce.
