Things have been a bit awkward lately, so Sarah is looking forward to catching up with Richard over a game of darts. Well, until bride-to-be Ava invites herself along.

What the wannabe writer really needs is a distraction, preferably a dishy one, and Jason fits the bill nicely. Best pal Chloe, on the other hand, reconsiders her dirty Groupon weekend with the married estate agent when she bumps into his wife.

You've got to sympathise with Stan. Feeling neglected by Carol - who is struggling to master the arty latte - and inferior to her more adventurous ex, Phil, he puts off popping the question yet again.

An incident at the end of the episode might force the gardener's hand, though. At least Mary is having a grand ol' time and, with Alice away, she can't wait to get her hands on Jack's shiny new boules.
