Series 4, Episode 5 - The Naked Living Room

After bumping into each other at the supermarket, Jane comes back to Oliver's flat - but having been single for a year, it's not in a presentable state.

Further details

Is it possible that life-time loser in love Oliver might just get somewhere with life-time loser in love Jane? Trouble is, how can you win the heart of a good woman, when your flat is a little 'un-edited', and your living room has lost the battle with magazine nudity?
