Further details

Beth and Cathy head over to Ian and Jaz's flat to celebrate the boys moving in together. With their wives away for the evening, Eric and Colin make a night of it watching Andy Murray's US Open tennis match on TV. However, the international time delay means the men have time to spare, so they set up the swingball to pass the hours. Trouble is, Christine ends up being much more involved than they'd like.

Ian and Jaz's plans for a quiet celebratory drink are dashed by Cathy's over-exuberant dancing which upsets the boys' downstairs neighbour, a mother of a newborn baby. An intoxicated and infuriated Cathy takes issue with the neighbours' polite request to keep the noise down, much to Beth's horror.

The night ends in typically disastrous fashion with lost house keys, concussion and curry stains on the carpet.
