Believing that it could lead to a Hollywood career Steven reluctantly agrees to do the Royal Variety Show, hosted by Bob Monkhouse - who is not dead but has a zombie wife and whose jokes Steven fails to understand. Steven's rendition of the Sand Dance partnered by Ray Purchase is a hit but chances of Hollywood success disappear due to an unsuitable gift for the Prince of Wales, not to mention being responsible for killing Bob Monkhouse.
