Series 1, Episode 1 - Who's That Boy?

Linda and Tom wake up after a heavy night's drinking to find a half-dressed man in their kitchen. Neither recall anything about the evening, nor can find any evidence of having done the deed - but equally, neither can accept the possibility that they didn't but the other did. Just who is this man?
