A hugely lucrative golden-handcuff deal is jeopardised when one of Charles’ most successful clients – stand-up comedian Alan Boardman (Jason Barry) – is caught on CCTV camera beating up his girlfriend in the IKEA car park.

Meanwhile, in an attempt to sex up their image, the Tory party have approached Prentiss McCabe to launch a youth-led campaign. Should they choose as their anthem I Have A Dream by Westlife, It's OK by Atomic Kitten, or Blue's All Rise?
