Further details

Rodney has ran out of yuletide cheer, as the annual routing of the Trotter festivities are wearing thin. Burnt turkey, charred Christmas pudding, the same old things on television, and nothing but a book lent to him by Mickey Pearce: 'Body Language: The Lost Art'.

When Grandad puts on his glad rags and heads to the OAPs' party at the community centre, the Trotter boys head to The Monte Carlo Club.

Rodney puts his new-found knowledge of the unspoken language of love to use, but Del Boy has other ideas.

As the brothers argue over who's technique is best, the objects of their affections are whisked away from under their noses.
