Mrs Doyle wins the first prize in a poetry contest, a visit from the housewives' favourite matinee idol, crooner and presenter Eoin McLove who comes to serenade her. Unfortunately she has told one of her friends and Eoin and his assistant Patsy are soon besieged overnight in the Parochial House with the priests as scores of middle-aged women congregate to see their idol, eventually breaking in and pursuing them upstairs. They are only dispersed when Mrs Doyle reminds them that they must return home to get their husbands' breakfasts. As a result of the visit Ted gets to appear on Eoin's quiz show but fails to win the main prize by not knowing the Pope's real name. Written by
