Series 2, Episode 14 - Jobs For The Girls
Sharon has started pet sitting for the fat cats of Chigwell who want their fat cats fed and their fat dogs walking.
Tracey has dug out her ancient typewriter and has decided to get back into typing from home. Sharon isn't convinced that it is a good idea. Tracey's advert in the newsagents leads to dirty phone calls.
Dorien has spotted Tracey's advert and asks her to type up her novel, but she struggles with the typewriter. Dorien suggests using Garth's computer instead and arranges for her friends young son Adrian to teach her how to use it.
As Tracey practices typing up Sharon's newspaper advert, Adrian warns her to stay of his pet sitting patch.
The girls are impressed with Dorien's novel, though it seems overly familiar.
Adrian tries to damage Sharon's reputation by putting up posters of pretend missing animals that Sharon was supposedly minding. Sharon resorts to kidnapping a tortoise that Adrian is minding. They finally Dorien mediates at a meeting to settle their differences.
The girls realise that Dorien's novel is an almost exact copy of The French Lieutenant's Woman. She says she just wanted to impress them. They suggest that she write a book about herself.
