Further details

Andy and best pal Maggie are appearing as extras in a costume drama starring Zippy look-alike Ross Kemp. The heat is on as Ross (ex-Super Army Soldier, apparently), plays up to his tough guy image and challenges Vinnie Jones' macho-ism. Not to his face though obviously!

Andy can't get his face (or voice) in a scene for love nor money. But he can console a much-bullied Ross. And romance is on the cards for Maggie but she fears her lack of intellect may let her down. Actually it's her sexual technique.
