Mr Khan embraces Christmas like never before by launching his own range of traditional halal mince pies with the help of a local business dragon.

Shazia and Amjad try to find somewhere else to live, because their landlord is selling their house and they can't afford the deposit to buy it. Naani has a solution - she's going to give them the money for the deposit. Her only mistake is entrusting it to Mr Khan, who promptly loses it.

To retrieve it, he heads to the Community Centre's Winter Wonderland, where Dave's putting on a show about a talking snowman that may or may not be able to fly. Mr Khan finds himself re-creating an iconic festive scene.

The story ends with a tearjerker as Mr Khan suffers a very personal loss.
