The brilliant Mark Heap’s hilarious turn as oddball neighbour Jim is always one of the highlights of Friday Night Dinner.

And as the family sitcom returns for a fifth series, there’s an unexpected turn of events when the confirmed bachelor goes on a date with new lady friend Jackie, played by Rosie Cavaliero.

But when Jim manages to set fire to the restaurant, the couple turn up – soaking wet – at the Goodmans’ house to join the family for a toe-curlingly awkward meal.

Throw in a hot tub and a furniture-destroying dog, and you’ve got another classic episode of this consistently funny series.
