Series 5, Episode 7 - Albert

Manolito wants a white fluffy bunny for his Lola's 4th birthday party, else there will be trouble. Cardi steps up to the plate, thinking he'll easily be able to provide. And sure enough, he gets his hands on Albert, the biggest bunny anyone has ever seen. So far so good, until an altercation with Cardi's longstanding enemy, Russell Hardwick, ends with Russell stealing Albert. The clock is now ticking on Cardi. If he doesn't get a bunny to Manolito that night, there will be all hell to pay.
