Further details

A documentary crew take over the hospital for the day and it's clear that there is only going to be one star of the show - Angela. It appears that there is a new star-studded career ahead of her, one which she will not let anything (including the little problem of working her notice) stand in her way.

Whilst Angela dreams of fame and fortune, the rest of the staff are much more interested in a videotape which has come to light - a videotape showing that night between Guy and Joanna. Sue White is one of the people who manages to get a hold of it and delights in holding both Guy and Joanna to ransom.

As a result of this ransom, there is even more confusion between Mac and Caroline and the relationship between them. Luckily for Caroline however, Boyce helps to clear everything up and so their relationship may finally start to run smoothly.

In the meantime, Guy has to try and find new ways to travel to the hospital as he has been banned from public transport and Martin has finally worked up the courage to break up with Karen. At the end of this episode Angela leaves the hospital - what will happen to her?
