It is talent show time at Greybridge School, but the teachers are doing the acts and the pupils are the judges.

Mr Church is reluctant to enter until Miss Postern suggests he duet with her, but will artistic differences ruin their chances? Mr Gunn's Keith Lemon impression is set to steal the show, until there are some unexpected late entries.
