Series 1, Episode 7 - Cosplay

The gang discover that Mel is into cosplay, and are soon all giving it a go.

Further details

Craig finds out that Mel is into cosplay - dressing up as her favourite fantasy/sci-fi characters. But when she tries it at the Megabowl, Craig 2 comes down on it like a ton of bricks and Mel is really upset. She storms round to rant at Craig, who - glad of some company - agrees to give cosplay a go. And when he finds his character, he really gets into it.

As do Yasmin - come to look for Lauren - and, eventually, Lauren herself. They decide to hit the Megabowl and show Craig 2 what he's missing. But Mel gets cold feet when some local kids start taunting them - and when he learns why it's so important to Mel, superhero Craig rides to the rescue.

Back at the flat, Yasmin reveals that she's avoiding going home to dinner with a potential Asian suitor her parents have organised. She wants to stay - a day, maybe more...? But now Declan's moved out, there's a spare room - and, to Craig's mixed delight and horror, Yasmin moves in.
