Season 1 / Episode 5 and airs on 18 October 2017 20:00
Steve and Nicky are both on their second marriages and have decided that moving to the countryside from the city is the answer to all their dreams. They've watched all the TV relocation shows and read the glossy lifestyle magazines and fell in love with the idea of 'getting away from the rat race'.Unfortunately living a simple existence in beautiful surroundings is not all it's cracked up to be and Steve and Nicky soon find living in the countryside might not be for them after all. Especially when they discover that the house they've bought is situated in what locals refer to as 'The Dip' - a place where internet signals cannot reach, but floodwater most definitely can.Thanks to unscrupulous estate agents, architects and builders squeezing more money out of the couple, they find themselves in a financial situation that means there is no going back.The couple must put on a brave face as the last thing they want is for all their friends back in the city to be proven right after they all said it was a 'bad move'.
Nicky and Steve's move to their dream house in the country is rapidly turning into a nightmare because they cannot get connected to the internet.
When Nicky and Steve discover that their kitchen has flooded, they have to call on Nicky's dad for help. The ever-unimpressed Ken duly arrives with a pump - but Steve is convinced that the source of the flooding could be a natural spring. He hopes this will be the answer to all their problems. Nicky takes a more practical approach to their finances and decides to earn some money by walking a villager's dog. But when the locally-based rock star Grizzo turns up with some alarming news, it is not just Nicky's job that might be at risk.
Nicky and Steve's dreams of peaceful country nights are shattered by Grizzo and his band rehearsing his latest album outdoors. But Steve isn't getting much sleep anyway - his web design business is losing customers hand over fist to a rival firm. And just to rub it in, Matt and Meena's latest business venture is going from strength to strength. When they ask Steve for some free advice on designing a website he is not impressed. But that's nothing to his reaction when Nicky manages to land him with a work experience boy from the local village – the dreaded Bronson.
Nicky and Steve are alarmed to discover that an ancient public right of way runs straight through their garden. When Steve makes an enemy of the ramblers who insist of using it, a tense stand-off ensues. Their only hope is to persuade the villagers to sign their petition.
Meanwhile, Matt and Meena have organised their children into taking part in a sponsored recorderthon for the local hospital. They are adamant that Nicky and Steve should come along to support it. Grizzo is preoccupied with a new craze – E.F.T. or ‘tapping therapy'. Could it be the answer to Nicky and Steve's problems?
Nicky and Steve are missing the hustle and bustle of the city. They fantasise about all the exciting things they could be getting up to if they hadn't left their old life in Leeds and moving to the middle of nowhere. Instead, all Steve has to look forward to is a day of chasing up invoices for his web design business. Nicky's day seems to be going even worse when she's conned into taking Alice, an old lady from the village, to the doctor's. Whilst Nicky's day takes a turn for the better, Steve's takes a bizarre and frightening twist. But at least someone's happy – Nicky's dad Ken has won the meat raffle at the bowls club.
Nicky and Steve decide to put a brave face on things and invite all their old friends from Leeds for a long overdue housewarming party. Their permanently smug neighbours, Matt and Meena, enthusiastically join in the preparations. Even Nicky's Dad, Ken, decides to grace the party with his presence, although he loses no opportunity to tell them that their money would be better spent doing their house up. It's looking like most of Nicky and Steve's friends from Leeds won't be coming but when word of the party gets round the village, a very different guest list threatens to turn up – including the dreaded Bronson. But it's Grizzo whose arrival causes the most excitement.
