Further details

The arrival of the new French teacher, Mademoiselle Duquette, causes a stir and Ollie becomes obsessed by her, launching an all-out charm offensive to the exclusion of a chagrined Jas.

Meanwhile, DK, on a mission to pay back the school fine he incurred for his radio show antics, embarks on a new career as a nude, life-drawing model. His debut is less than stellar and, against her better judgement, the principal allows him to make a second attempt, which proves little short of shambolic.

Chloe and Matt try to spice up their sex life by experimenting with some slightly specialist techniques and props, and, perturbed by Ollie's overtures to Mademoiselle Duquette, Jas retaliates - with disastrous consequences.
