Series 1, Episode 6

Phil is surprised to learn from Jack's headmaster that the band has entered the school talent contest.

Further details

Jack plucks up the courage to ask Lucy if she'll come and support the band at the talent show, but is disappointed when she makes it clear she thinks its lame and has no intention of being there. Meanwhile, it looks like the band has settled on a name at last: 1-2-3-4.

Despite all the mishaps, the show does go on and, to Jack's surprise, Lucy is there. She even tells him she thought the band were really good. Does Jack have a chance with her after all?
