Brighton has won a contest for Brian Setzer of The Stray Cats to film his latest video at the house. The head of this promotion is Bobbi Flekman, who bears a striking resemblance to a certain Sheffield nanny. Bobbi happens to be an ex-business associate of Maxwell's. C.C. convinces Fran that Bobbi, being a perfect amalgamation of the two of them, is the ideal woman that Maxwell has been searching for. With Sylvia and Val's assistance, Fran decides to abduct Bobbi during the video shoot while Fran impersonates her to get into Maxwell's heart. As Bobbi, Fran quickly learns that Maxwell is not attracted to Bobbi in that way. But looking at Bobbi/Fran now, there's something about the "new" Bobbi that is attractive to Maxwell. He soon finds out that it is Fran underneath the business attire, and decides to have some fun of his own at her expense. In the end, Fran's scheme may have some financial consequences for Maxwell.
