In a Wolverhampton heatwave, cousin Cathy arrives at the Garry home. With tales of the outside world and legs that look good in shorts, Cathy is the centre of attention and catches the eye of Lee, Germaine's would-be boyfriend and local yob.

In the grips of overwhelming jealousy, Germaine sets out to psychologically crush Cathy. She drags her siblings into the conflict, and events quickly spiral out of control.

Della, meanwhile, is attempting self-sufficiency to reduce her massive food bill but is having trouble policing her vegetable borders and has to call on a reluctant Grampy to help.
