Series 1, Episode 5

Max and Paddy run over a cow and are compensated with a so-called profitable pig.

Further details

After a run-in with a wandering cow, Max and Paddy go looking for its owner in search of compensation for the damage done to their beloved motorhome. Instead, they meet an eccentric, red-faced farmer with a penchant for incorporating lyrics into sentences. However, it soon becomes clear that the so-called breeding pig is no more than an ageing lothario and no good to butcher or beast. Unable to offload their meaty purchase, Max and Paddy return to the farm seeking financial gain. The truth only reveals itself when they catch sight of their friendly farmer trying to hump a scarecrow.
