Further details

Things are still tense between Sami and his wife Yasmine, who has now claimed asylum in Germany. Sami joins the black economy as a tutor but ends up getting much more than he bargained for.

Meanwhile, Katy and John have to entertain the smug, gluten-free Germans who have come over from Berlin to persuade Sami to join Yasmine and George. John decides to call in some suitably-groomed reinforcements to bolster Sami's side of the argument, but maybe that isn't such a good idea.
