Jamie's been seeing Isabel for a few weeks, and is enjoying having some carefree fun for once. Laura is hurt and shocked to discover he's in a new relationship, and can't believe Jamie's been so easily manipulated.

Jamie, however, doesn't see it that way. In fact he's happy to finally be in a relationship with a girl who's really into him and not blowing hot and cold all the time. Laura realises she may have finally lost him.

Meanwhile, Beth finds it hard to shake off a lesbian admirer, Poppy. Worried she's led Poppy on, and too PC to rebuff her directly, Beth consults Mike on the best way to alienate women - after all, he's an expert. Mike coaches Beth, Cyrano de Bergerac-style, on how to get dumped.
