Martin realises he has no job, no car, no son and no woman so gets Jean to set him up on a blind date with her friend from Zumba - Harriet, an assertive body-language expert.

Martin and Harriet go on a date which goes well, despite being gate-crashed by Neil, and the two hit it off over Martin's uncanny ability for mimicry.

Meanwhile Neil, who is convinced his elevated oestrogen levels are the reason he was dumped by Jean, goes to a Build-a-Ted workshop to build a cuddly toy to win back Jean's heart.
