Warwick meets up with estranged wife Sue and her solicitor - and new partner - Ian to finalise their divorce settlement. But his decision to bring his accountant along for advice and support doesn't work out as planned.

Meanwhile, to try and lift his spirits Warwick arranges a flat warming party, inviting new date Amy. With no luck convincing his old co-stars to come along, Warwick splashes out to book Cat Deeley as a celebrity guest for the evening.

Amy arrives but Warwick spends the evening trying to impress Cat ... which doesn't go down well with either of them.
