Further details

Geoff watches Josh perform an unsuccessful stand-up gig and decides to take it upon himself to help Josh's career. Which means only one thing - a trip to Clacton and an on-stage performance with the Chuckle Brothers.

Can Josh cheat Geoff and avoid this humiliating fate? Meanwhile in Clacton, Kate and Owen put their competitive personalities to one side in order to try and win a cuddly toy that just so happens to look like a certain curly-haired Devonian.
