Series 1, Episode 7 - Tangled Webs

Now dumped by Joanna, Alan tries to find something else to take his mind off things, so he tries religion, under the guidance of the rather attractive hospital chaplin. Martin gets his exams results back but is too nervous to read them, and Guy prepares for his World Guyball Championship semi-final.

Further details

Martin gets his exam results back, but can't quite work up the nerve to open them, despite Boyce offering to pay him if he did. Eventually Guy does it on his behalf and takes advantage of the opportunity to play a cruel joke on him in the process.

Elsewhere in the hospital, Alan Statham tries to get over Joanna dumping him and manages to by discovering the love of Jesus (and of course the fact there is a very attractive chaplain helps).
