When Fran admits to Sharon that she's seeing a new man, Sharon decides that she and Rob should inject some passion into their love life. When her advances don't quite go to plan, Rob suggests a weekend break in Paris.

With Fergal looking after the kids, Sharon develops an appetite for a holiday drink. Unfortunately for her, she's forgotten the breast pump and is unable to express milk. Back in London, Chris is cashing in on his new found freedom by exploring his sexuality at an experimental nightclub.

In Paris, there is good and bad news for Rob when Sharon finds a breast pump but also buys some weed. It's a combination that doesn't end well for her.
