Further details

The Midnight Beast are all set for a holiday. They're all set to go, until Stef discovers that Ash has changed all their passport photos for selfies. They have to set their sights closer to home, and end up in a local car park, making the best of it.

Stef has put together a camping site under a holiday billboard, but soon all the holiday stresses come to the surface.

Stef is strung out, Dru is grumpy, and it's only Ash, who is like a kid in a candy store. They even had a rep called Ed, who gives them the rules of the car park, but is also desperate to be their friend. And Ash strikes up a holiday romance in the shape of social worker, Jess.

Tensions soon reach breaking point. Will they actually survive the week without killing each other?

The episode has two brand new songs: #Holiday featuring a sample from Cliff and Shadows' classic hit, Summer Holiday; and When I'm Older which sees the boys imagine what life would be like when they are old and grey. It's not pretty.
