Series 2, Episode 6 - Stags Or Hens

It's the night before the wedding and emotions run high as Richard and Ava say their goodbyes to singledom.

Further details

It's the night before the wedding and, as is tradition, Richard and Ava head off on their hen and stag dos. Held at Cyril's, the bride-to-be's is probably as wild as Weston gets, with drinking games and strippers, while Richard is more than happy to crack open a couple of beers on the beach with Sarah and Dave

Dave, by the way, is Richard's weird mate from the nursing home, who happens to be pretty observant when it comes to Richard and Sarah. The pair barely go beyond 'Alrights' these days, but a drunken game of hide-and-seek makes it clear that there's still something there.

With emotions (and alcohol levels) running high, Sarah completely misreads a situation with Jason before having a heart-to-heart with Ava.
