Further details

It's Big Gary's birthday and Gary has organised a family day out at an indoor mini golf course, but his plans are gatecrashed by Winkle who also wants to spend the day with his old boss. The father versus son golf game gets highly competitive and fully explodes when Big Gary is accused of cheating.

Meanwhile, Denise takes a shine to the crockery in the restaurant and Terri sticks her oar into Gary's mate John the Butcher's date. She knows that John is already seeing one of her mates so righteously informs the date, in the ladies, that the man she is having dinner with is a "class A wrong un", but has she got her facts straight?
