The Worst Christmas Of My Life, Episode 3
Christmas day arrives and so begins a ritual of friends, food, frivolity - and the odd, potentially fatal occurrence. Will Howard remain irrevocably unpopular or will he, just this once, step in and save the day?
With the whole family attending Midnight Mass, Howard protects himself from Eve's insane ex boyfriend Mitch, by bludgeoning him with the Virgin Mary from the Nativity display. Despite this, things for once are just starting to look up for him when the next morning Mel admits she is strangely turned on by his macho behaviour - surely not a good idea when your in-laws are downstairs!
When Fraser convinces himself that Howard has stolen his bagpipes and Eve becomes dangerously suicidal, Howard's chances of a relaxing Christmas Day with his family start to recede alarmingly. At least nothing terrible will happen to the Christmas presents... or will it?
