It's the morning after Trish's big divorce party, and she's half-clothed in Karl's flat. Unable to remember a thing, Karl is horrified to see that the new deputy manager at work is a beautiful woman his own age, and swiftly plans his departure from the job centre.

The staff at Brownall Job Centre are recovering from a night out celebrating Trish's divorce. But for Karl, a hangover is the least of his problems when he wakes up with a naked woman in his flat.

Trish is thrilled to have new deputy manager Natalie Mason as a confidante and immediately spills the beans about the big night out and her new younger boyfriend.

However, Natalie is not as popular with Angela, who is back and at her most awkward in the role of cost-cutting commander, and very bitter at being overlooked for promotion herself.
