The desert island disgrace continues in this new comedy, as the castaways run out of airline food. Douglas offers to utilise his hunting expertise but, sadly, his survival skills are more Gentle Ben than Bear Grylls. Brett has a plan for uncovering Harriet's secret and Ventolin vamp Susan tries to seduce Douglas.
