Things get saucy this week when, as a side effect of taking HRT, Stella's sex drive goes up a notch, leading to an unexpected encounter with a famous face.

Neighbour Michael, on the other hand, is finding it hard to settle in, and a squabble with Stella over bin etiquette, not to mention the arrival of a donkey on the street, doesn't help.

A couple of Pontyberry residents are looking to start afresh, too, and while Aunty Brenda means business when she organises a meeting with Dai, Big Alan follows doctors' orders and tries to lose weight. Plus, Bobby and Daddy find themselves burdened with too many bodies, and trouble looms for Zoe and Luke after Lenny gets back in contact.
