Vod comes up with a plan to get rid of her holiday romance.

Howard likes a girl but JP thinks she's out of his league, so he tries to poach her in order to restore the natural order of things.

Kingsley can't find it in himself to break things off with Heather, so he dates both her and Josie, who is commuting long-distance from Southampton.

Josie is keen to come back to Manchester and get on to Pharmacology, but there's one big problem - the course tutor is Sabine.
