Series 1, Episode 6 - Funeral

Jeremy's uncle Ray, is dying in a hospice. Jeremy decides to deal with his uncle's death by taking advantage of Toni. Or at least he tries too. Meanwhile Mark finally gets Sophie on a date... at the funeral.

Further details

Jeremy causes a stir at the funeral by standing up for Ray's faith, much to the annoyance of one of his aunts. However, it goes down well with everyone else. As Mark gets to his chance with Sophie he begins to worry about his large testicles.

Jeremy finds out that the cause of Ray's death is a hereditary disease. This pushes Jeremy to the edge, ruining Mark and Sophie's weekend away, as they feel obliged to invite him. Jeremy gets drunk and tries it on with Soph, but she turns him down.

Mark finds Jez passed out in the living room whilst going to get some condoms, thinking he has committed suicide. This ruins Mark's chance of sleeping with Sophie, ending up in the friend zone. Jeremy tells Toni he is dying to take advantage of her sympathy. It works this time.
