Jen and boyfriend Peter are planning a dinner party for six single friends but the three men are all indisposed so Jen asks her three work colleagues. Roy is pleased to sit next to a model but as her face is bandaged after a car crash he is unable to see what she looks like. Moss gets stuck with drunken Margaret, who argues with him but Richmond and the hearty Jessica appear to get on. However Jen discovers that Peter's name is Peter File and, as this sounds very much like paedophile and is embarrassing, she dumps him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Lots of awkward laughs.
21 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jen's had a lucky break, and met handsome and normal chap Pete, he's planning on taking her to Paris. To help their single friends Jen and Pete hold a dinner Party. Jen reluctantly invites Roy, Moss and Richmond as her original guests cancel. The guests are as barking mad as would be expected, but they make for an entertaining meal. Roy, Moss and Richmond are all paired off, Richmond being the happiest with his partner.

So funny, awkwardness, great script, slick delivery, great characters, it's a laugh out loud episode, the trio of girls are hilarious, Peter File too. You shouldn't be laughing, just just can't help yourself.

Loved it once again, the series keeps getting better and better. 8/10
