Jamie and Laura start flat hunting but Laura finds fault with every property. Isabel, their estate agent, who's taken a liking to Jamie, quickly realises that their relationship is rocky and sees an opportunity to split them up.

Meanwhile, Mike gets a job when a cute girl, Lorraine, recruits him to run her father's sports shop. Beth however is convinced something fishy is going on and discovers the business is a front for smuggling cartons of Chinese cigarettes. Mike is in it up to his neck, but he can't walk away as Lorraine's father will kill him. Luckily Beth has a plan.

Meanwhile, Sandra runs into Hester, the campsite snob, who's holidaying at the caravan park. Too proud to reveal she is actually a permanent resident, Sandra lies, and says she's on holiday too. A pretence that is hard to keep up when Hester invites Sandra and Keith to a BBQ.
