Series 3, Episode 1 - Keeping Up Appearances

On a visit to see Chris, Sharon notices that Darryl has let himself go; he's unshaven, with greasy unwashed hair, and has picked up equally filthy habits. But Tracey's such a regular visitor that she's not noticed his gradual decline, and doesn't take too kindly to Sharon pointing it out.
