Things are great with Matt and Meg. Their problems in the bedroom are firmly behind them and Matt is relieved to hear the news that Iain is planning to propose to Kate. Meg, on the other hand, fears her ex is rushing into marriage and quibbles about whether to air her concerns.

Love is on the cards for Meg's co-receptionist Martin, too, but upon discovering that he's going to dinner with Paula, Meg frets the counsellor will divulge some very personal information with her far-from-discreet colleague.

It's a big day for Ryan as he takes his driving test for the fourth time and, although Gail wants him to do well, she wouldn't be too disappointed to keep a paying customer on the books.

Sam's entrepreneurial skills also leave a lot to be desired when he strikes a deal with the "Reggie Kray of condiments", agreeing to stock Deansfield Chutney at the tourist office in exchange for a share of the profits.
