Series 2, Episode 2 - Gay

Tim is worried that he isn't manly enough. Lee is persuaded by Lucy to pretend to be gay.

Further details

Lee is persuaded by Lucy to pretend to be gay in order for her to get closer to Guy, a new business acquaintance.

His deception is soon uncovered and he is taken to a 'specialist' club to test his alleged sexuality.
