Further details

Winston appeals to his friends for help as asbestos forces him out of his flat. However, with nobody keen to take him in, Winston stumbles on alternative - and inspired - living arrangements of his own.

Isa's birthday is on the horizon and she's on a mission to find out who's throwing her a surprise party. Navid tells her she's impossible to surprise and no-one would dare to attempt it, but she is sceptical and starts to spy on the others, in hope of spotting signs of a secret party.

Later, Jack and Victor head to The Clansman and encounter a flustered Tam. To their dismay, they discover Boabby's trendy ambitions for the pub, which mean their sort won't be welcome anymore.

With The Clansman regulars turfed out and Winston in need of a roof over his head, a new hangout is soon discovered - with perks for all the pensioner pals.
