While Gio sends Immie loved up text messages, Karen lets slip to Rob about the two of them. He goes mad and demands to meet this ‘boy’, so he has a chat with Immie who leaves for college feeling awkward.

Later, Karen makes the suggestion that Gio comes round for an Italian homecooked dinner with the family. Immie is deeply embarrassed when Gio arrives and then declares his love for her, reciting a poem he has written for her.

Rob, initially curt, starts to enjoy himself after sensing Immie’s awkwardness! After Gio leaves, Immie is left pondering what to do next – is it all a bit much?

Also, Elaine is alarmed when she bumps into an old patient who has recently piled on the pounds and claims to have the perfect new boyfriend.
