Karen is horrified when she gets back from the shops and finds Alex under house arrest in her flat, especially as she's still hurt that Alex dumped her at a party. However, thanks to British bureaucracy, she discovers she can't just throw him out and will have to take drastic action if ... Written by RB & LF
