Ray finds himself in a rather sticky situation when his new boss - a particularly 'voluptuous' woman - drops in to inspect the hall's running. Christine soon finds herself with equal cause to regret the previous few days.

Ray is a man who keeps himself to himself. But when ambition enters the picture, he is faced with an awful dilemma when the regional manager Miss Grimes comes calling. Does he seduce the 'bulky whale' to try and get the London job or does he run a mile?
