Series 6, Episode 4 - The Unlucky Winner Is...

Del enters an old painting of Rodney's in to a competition and unexpectedly wins a holiday for three. Unfortunately for Rodney, his painting came first in the under 15 category... Del decides not to tell anyone and deal with it once they get out there.

Further details

Del has entered every competition on the market, trying to win as many freebies as possible.

Rodney has unknowingly been entered for an art competition, and won it. It's only when he arrives at the 5 star hotel in Mallorca that he learns he was a schoolboy when he composed the winning painting, and has won the under-15 category.

While Del enjoys playing Dad and Cassie begrudgingly puts up with playing stepmum, Rodders has to endure the Fun Bus, chaotic children, and becoming a lifelong member of The Groovy Gang.

He has the last laugh, however, as Del's tinkering with his passport makes them ineligible to claim a winning ticket on the Spanish lottery.
