Gaz's plans for Jonny's stag night go badly wrong, when he discovers that all their friends & acquaintances know that he slept with Janet.

Further details

It's the week before Janet and Jonny's wedding, and Janet and Jonny are planning their stag and hen parties. The first problem is that Janet is pregnant and Jonny doesn't want her to do anything that will damage her baby. Janet agrees to have a quiet baby shower, with her friends Louise and Donna.

But Janet and Donna have fallen out over Janet sleeping with Gaz and Louise, who is up for trial for causing Jonny's shooting and may shortly go to jail, wants the quiet baby shower to be the rowdiest hen party in the world.

Donna gives Janet a precious heirloom from her family home and Janet promptly steps on it, and squashes it out of recognition. And then the party really starts... Meanwhile, Gaz is having trouble organising Jonny's stag night.

Gaz is determined that no-one should tell Jonny that Gaz slept with Janet, but Kelly and Munch seem to have told all of Jonny's friends.

Gaz ends up having to invite people Jonny doesn't know to his own stag party. The night goes from bad to worse for Jonny when the minibus containing his stags sets off without him, leaving Gaz and Jonny back at the pub playing dominoes.

Gaz eventually sorts out some real entertainment in the form of a stripper, only to discover that she too knows of Gaz and Janet's secret. Gaz is left to provide the entertainment and, as it turns out, does rather good job.
