There is no Next Episode of Hi-de-Hi! planned.
Persistent rain literally washes out the outdoor entertainments usually provided for the children and, to make matters worse, Partridge has hit another kid - who will be compensated by winning a singing contest. Unfortunately this has already been rigged to accommodate another winner so that Ted has to come up with a plan to keep everybody happy.
Peggy Ollerenshaw, the most vocal member of Miss Cathcart's cleaning staff, is anxious to be a Yellowcoat entertainer and Jeff arranges for her to have an interview. To give her an opportunity to prove her entertaining skills Ted invites her to impersonate a shark in a poolside routine which will involve bathing beauty Spike being rescued from the beast's jaws. Unfortunately she isn't very good and will need to wait awhile before she can bid farewell to her dusters.
Jeff decides that there should be sing-alongs led by Spike but these are not entirely successful. His next idea, to play records of classical music to the campers to improve their minds, is even more of a flop and it is up to Ted to step in and give the public what they want without hurting Jeff's feelings.
Ted is offered the opportunity to do another gig, away from the holiday camp. If it goes well he is likely to get a residency at golf club dinners. Jeff reluctantly gives him time off but his act dies, as Peggy, who has sneaked off to see him, tells Jeff. In order to spare Ted's feelings as to why he will now no longer want to leave Maplin's, Jeff tells him he is too valuable to the camp to let him go.
Gladys is sent a bottle of champagne by an admirer, which she shares with Jeff. Later that evening, in order to be civil, Jeff agrees to have a few beers with Bert, a rather loud football fan. As a consequence he gets rather tipsy and Gladys has to escort him back to his chalet. Hearing Jeff telling Gladys to 'let him go' Barry and Yvonne, the snooty dance demonstrators, feel that there is hanky-panky going on and are about to spread the word when Gladys saves Jeff's reputation. However, she still leaves him to wonder what exactly went on between them.
Comedian Spike Dixon falls for the lovely Brenda and the feeling is mutual. The only problem is that Brenda's father regards Spike's occupation as being anything but a proper trade and, if he is to give consent to the union, Spike must follow him into the family's butcher's shop. Spike is faced with a dilemma but Ted and Jeff know exactly what he should do for the best.
