Further details

Sharon's living in a pigsty and Tracey blames her when the house becomes overrun with mice, even though she claims that Chigwell don't have mice.

Dorien claims that the workman Tracey spotted sneaking in that morning is just an odd job man.

Tracey convinces Dorien to invite her friends over so she can try and sell some of her Aromantique perfume, Dorien isn't keen on the idea, especially if Sharon insists on sucking the eggs from king prawns in front of them.

Tracey forces Sharon to have a deep clean, but Sharon has other ideas.

When poison doesn't seem to be working Sharon gets a cat to try and solve the mouse problem.

Dorien hears screams and comes running in, her understanding and lack of disgust at the mice confuse Tracey. Tiddles the cat has urinated all over the house.

When Sharon finally calls pest control, a phone rings in the kitchen, Dorien's odd job man answers. It turns out the infestation originated next door.
