Series 1, Episode 3 - Mama's Boy

Romesh gets caught in another jam when he's forced to put Lemon's mum Debbie up in his spare room.

Further details

Romesh reluctantly helps out when Lemon asks if his judgemental mother, Debbie, can stay in Rom's spare room. In exchange for Rom's help, Lemon offers up Debbie's babysitting skills and a brand new TV for the pub so Rom's punters can watch the greatly anticipated 'big fight'.

Lemon, however, conveniently forgets to mention that his mum's babysitting approach is a bit unconventional, leaving Romesh no choice but to confront her. As this unfolds at home, Natasha is left waiting impatiently for Romesh to join her on their date night.
