Further details

Gary takes Teddy to the driving range to teach him some golf basics. To Gary's surprise and delight, Teddy would appear to be a natural - ball after ball is struck sweetly and soars into the distance. This is exciting news for Gary and his dad, who soon have Teddy's golfing career and path to superstardom all mapped out - Gary has already entered Teddy into a tournament next week.

Said tournament turns out to clash with Teddy's school spelling bee, so Gary heads to see the head teacher Mrs Grant to see if something can be done. The spelling bee won't move and so, with a little light encouragement from Gary, Teddy chooses the golf tournament over the spelling bee.

As well as reinventing himself as a Daddy Caddy, Gary is realising he's got his work cut out with Aaron next door, whose partying ways are beginning to wind up Gary and the neighbours - but there's no reasoning with him.

Terri is under pressure from Denise to sit down with her and plan Terri and Gary's upcoming wedding. Terri has other ideas, and enlists Chloe Ferdinando as wedding planner - much to Denise's annoyance. Terri and Denise meet for a showdown in a fancy restaurant to thrash out how the wedding's going to be planned - and there's no love lost between them as Denise reluctantly agrees to step aside.

The golf tournament has definitely come a bit too soon for Teddy and doesn't go well. Teddy breaks it to Gary that he only plays golf to make his dad and grandad happy, and he'd much rather be at the spelling bee. And so Gary withdraws Teddy from the tournament and gets him to the spelling bee just in time - much to the delight of head teacher Mrs Grant.
