Series 3, Episode 6 - Funseekers

It's high season in Ibiza, and the 18-30s holidaymakers have arrived for another annual binge. But the pace is so frantic no-one notices the pregnant maid ostracised by her nearest and dearest. What's more, there's an over-age man in the midst of all this frenetic pleasure-seeking - Tony (who is in fact 34, and therefore shouldn't be there at all).
