Series 1, Episode 4 - The Second Time Around

Del's rekindled passion with old flame Pauline and it looks like wedding bells are in the air again. Rodney's not so thrilled after what happened to her first two husbands...

Further details

Del meets Trigger in The Nags Head, and he's stunned to hear that Pauline Harris, his ex-fiancée, is back in Peckham - twelve years after they last met.

Despite their engagement, Pauline left Del for another Mod with a faster scooter. But with her return, Del is willing to forgive and forget, and it's not long before they are engaged again - much to the disapproval of Rodney and Grandad.

Things get worse when Pauline moves into the flat and refuses to do her share of the housework. As her behaviour becomes unbearable, Rodders and Gramps leave for Auntie Rose's cottage in Clacton.

Del hears rumours about a recent police investigation into the death of Pauline's former husband (Bobby Finch), and when Pauline urges him to take out life insurance, a frightened Del decides to head for Auntie Rose's too, leaving an eviction notice for his fiancée.
