Adam comes home to find the house looking immaculate, with classical music playing in the living room, Mum's posh bowls on the dinner table, Dad in a smart suit, and most mysteriously - the table is set for five.

Further details

The doorbell rings and in comes Tanya Green, a girl Mum has been trying to fix up with Adam for months. What follows is possibly the most excruciating family dinner scene of all time.

Meanwhile, Jim has been locked out as his dog, Wilson has swallowed his keys. And so the blind date continues, but will Mum's dream of an Adam and Tanya wedding come true?
