Further details

The Bairds and Whytes arrive home from a pub quiz with Colin miffed they only came third, mocking the winners for taking it far too seriously.
Beth reminds him they were raising money for charity and Cathy and Eric agree until they learn that the winners walked away with a fifty quid M&S voucher.

It is the starting point for an evening of revelations, from past career aspirations, to surprising party pieces. Cathy demonstrates her flexibility while Colin offers up a Sean Connery impersonation. Ian, meantime, is in the doghouse following an unfortunate incident in Amsterdam
Christine pitches up, en route to visiting Pat in hospital but is soon waylaid by the prospect of Beth's home-made chips.

Gordon's attempt to impress with his own show of sporting prowess does not go entirely according to plan. Cathy's not bothered though as she is hoping to make a surprising new friend.
