It's the night of the charity gala dinner and Michael takes great pleasure in telling smug ex-wife Jan that, yes, he does indeed have a date for the evening: he'll be taking Stella. Now all the lawyer needs to do is actually ask Stella, who, after a slight grumble, is happy to oblige - maybe she hasn't sworn off men after all.

Temptation continues to get the better of daughter Emma, though, as stolen kisses with Marcus spiral into something far more serious.

Big Alan, meanwhile, is in need of a confidence boost after shying away from Celia's suggestion that she spend the night at his, and an upset Luke clashes with Lenny.
