Stef, Dru and Ash are a bit older, but no wiser. Their dreams of a record deal are put on hold, and it's time to go to find work. They get a job in a local ex-Bingo Hall, and their first task is to put on a birthday party for the owner's 16 year-old granddaughter and her friends.

Stef's reeling from discovering his girlfriend Zoe is now his ex-girlfriend, and going out with chart-topping rapper Sexual P. While he works on his own crazy idea for the party, Ash and Dru decide on a Twilight theme. But when everyone turns up the party, it's not exactly what everyone was hoping for.

With three brand new songs, the Broadway-inspired opener I Swear, Stef's gospel number, Black Guy, and Sexual P's hit, 5-A-Day Flex, this episode sees the boys back in the belly of the Beast, along with their eccentric neighbour Sloman, and new regulars, Sylvia the owner of the ex-Bingo Hall, and her granddaughters Ronnie and Hope.
