Pete attempts to break the world record for eating fish fingers. Doreen gets a little flustered when Redbridge Rovers legend Roger Small makes an appearance.

Further details

It's fundraising night in the Redbridge Rovers clubhouse and Doreen is pulling out all the stops. Eager to do his bit, Pete gears up to smash the club record for the amount of fish fingers eaten in one sitting. However, the pressure threatens to get too much for him when his childhood hero turns up at the club.

Meanwhile, Doreen's love interest Roger Small shows up for the event, but will she have the nerve to ask him out? And Tel upsets Pete when he breaks tradition and books a holiday with Mel for the first day of the season.
