Series 1, Episode 6

It's Judy's fortieth Birthday and the day of the not very Surprise Party. Leo wants to buy her a really lovely present but is strapped for cash.

Further details

Party preparations are afoot at the Macdonald household and Pam's not happy about the gaudy makeover of her home - but that's nothing compared to how she feels when she learns the truth about Judy - and discovers that she is the last family member to be told.

Leo proposes to Judy but she assumes he is joking and turns him down. He puts a brave face on it but is broken-hearted.

While the party gets underway Pam goes round to the Arkley house to have a very difficult conversation with Judy. "I've hit a woman before, oh yes! And don't think I wouldn't lay one on a transsexual!". Is this the end of the road for Leo and Judy?
