The Come Dine With Me-style competition takes on an Hawaiian theme, when surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman hosts for dinner guests Emma Reid, Jimmi Clay and Al Haskey.

Grumpy Al, who is notoriously hard to please, is not impressed with Valerie’s efforts to bring Hawaii to Letherbridge. But his colleagues Emma and Jimmi enjoy some limbo dancing and eating the pineapple-themed food.

But the evening takes an unexpected turn when two surprise (and passionate!) guests turn up.

Doctors, Al Haskey

Meanwhile, Karen Hollins tries to help her husband Rob, as he deals with the withdrawal symptoms from coming off his anti-depressants.

But Karen worries all is not well, when Rob goes upstairs to the bathroom and Karen then hears some strange noises…

Elsewhere, Daniel Granger’s wife Zara and their son Joe are still away in Weston-Super-Mare. So the doctor is looking forward to a nice Friday night pizza dinner and a bottle of wine from a local Italian restaurant.

But instead, Daniel finds himself pulled into the relationship drama of strangers and a 999 medical emergency!
