Julie asks Vic and Bosh to create a promotional video for her new Bistro. However, Vic wrote his script on the back of a moth which has escaped into the kitchen and begun gorging on everyone's underwear, turning it into a giant monster-moth with an insatiable appetite!

Meanwhile, a pop star with a striking resemblance to Erik has arrived in the country, causing a media stir. This gives Beef an idea, and they decide to plant Erik in the café to generate publicity and punters.


No episode on the 2nd March to make way for Let's Play Darts For Comic Relief. Episode 3 was originally going to have been The Dance Affair, but the order was changed.
