Storyline

Craggy Island is hosting the annual Priests' Stars in Their Eyes lookalike contest and the parochial house accommodates its presenter Henry Sellers. In an effort to curry favour for his entry Ted plies Henry with drink, unaware that he is a reformed alcoholic, who consequently goes berserk and has to be chased through the woods and shot with a tranquilizer gun. Next day, with Henry assured that he did nothing untoward whilst drunk, the contest goes ahead with the Craggy Island trio's entry the Three Ages of Elvis winning. They decide to celebrate with a drink and unfortunately so does Henry. Written by don @ minifie-1
