Leo and Judy are looking forward to a low key Sunday lunch at The Nelson. Their plans are thwarted though when Leo's family turn up at the pub and hijack their date. This awkward situation is then exacerbated by the arrival of Judy's Mum, Peggy and her sister, Jackie. And then there's Geoff, an old friend of Judy's who's very confused as he hasn't seen her since she transitioned.

Judy shares her story with Geoff and as the day progresses begins to feel that maybe she should come clean with the Macdonald clan too. But is this really a good idea? As Jackie says, "It could go seriously Jeremy Kyle!"
