Further details

It doesn't go well and they barely escape the guards, but the unlikely pair may have hit upon a Freegan-inspired business idea for selling out-of-date food.

Gloria's brother Dominic, a whisky priest who's recently stepped away from the church, causes mayhem on the estate when he's threatened by the husbands of two of his conquests, neither of whom he can remember having sex with.

And there's upset all around when Chesney advises Carl that he can do much better than Clem, who Carl plans to move in with.
