Series 1, Episode 5
Ray meets a contemporary from school who looks much younger than him - "I've had a face peel. You can get some great bargains. My wife's just had her tits done half price. Buy one, get one free".
Ray decides to have a face peel with disastrous results - "I've just paid a fortune on me face for it to pass for Phil Mitchell's arse. Collette Smith's just said I put her in mind of her sister. The one who's allergic to the 21st century. She's in a bubble. They have to roll her to the shops."
Eventually he is unable to call the numbers, so Bobby steps into the breach and becomes an overnight hit.
Christine is burgled and decides to go and live with her sister in Clacton. Has Martin left it too late to proclaim his love?
Sandy and Terry go and see an actual birth and come back shell-shocked. The only births they'd ever seen were on EastEnders and they were over in a matter of minutes! Can Mary reassure them that all will be well?
This episode is sometimes known as Face Peel.
