As the Dinner Winner competition gets underway, it is Dr Emma Reid’s turn to host the first dinner party.

But she’s hosting for a tough crowd. Dr Al Haskey is usually a right grump at the best of times. Receptionist Valerie Pitman has already branded Emma as “boring”. And then there was that awkward night away with colleague Dr Jimmi Clay!

However, everyone’s in for a surprise when they discover Emma has hired a butler-in-the-buff, Ricky Lamar, who also doubles as a male stripper! Will Valerie be lost for words?
