With a very unwelcome appraisal of his teaching skills already taking its toll on loser-hero Dan, fate conspires to throw him directly into the path of his childhood nemesis.

A big-bottomed guru returns to Dan's life to try to help him through the past trauma, whilst Nesta is also on hand to offer some brutal advice to her sap of a nephew.

Jo has a new money-making scheme, while Brian is determined to be published in the local paper.
