Stef, Ash and Dru are skint, in spite of their new job at the Bingo Hall.

Further details

Stef, Ash and Dru have entered a bunch of competitions, but all they've won so far is a packet of femidoms. They are now pinning their hopes on the local Birdman competition, and Dru begins designing their craft, with the help of a dead pigeon.

On their way out of the flat to the Bingo Hall, they bump into their neighbour Sloman in the hallway. He's had to move out because his wife wants a divorce. He needs the boys' help to get her back, so the boys put their Birdman plans on hold, and let him move in.

Dru trains Sloman up for the big showdown, which sees Sloman take on his wife in the ring at the Bingo Hall. It's a fight to the end. But will Sloman put up enough of a fight to win his wife back? And more importantly, will the boys make it to the Birdman competition on time?

This episode contains two new songs, the calypso-inspired Plenty More Fish, and the metal stomper, Ɯbercurrent.
