Further details

Gary's under 9s little league team, The Badgers, are in the cup final, but the week before the match his star player, Abboussi, is poached by Chelsea. Gary throws absolutely everything at getting him back for the big game and even turns up, unannounced, at Abboussi's Dad's workplace to try to convince him that his son is making the biggest mistake of his life.

Big Gary bets against his own son's side to earn a few quid, and Terri is stumped to learn mother-in-law, Denise, is new best buddies with Chloe Ferdinando. After getting wind that they have a night out planned, Terri's social paranoia eats away at her and the fear of missing out sends her potty.
