Season 8 / Episode 2 and airs on 20 January 2017 21:30
Sitcom following the jokes, jibes and general misunderstandings of happy-go-lucky Lee and his friends. Starring comedian and actor Lee Mack.
Lee's former flatmate Kate has moved back to America, so Tim decides to sell the flat. Faced with homelessness, Lee announces he'll buy the flat himself and sets to work putting off any other prospective buyers, including Tim's sister Lucy. Things get worse when Lucy puts in an offer on the flat and Tim is forced to decide where his loyalties lie.
Tim is worried that he isn't manly enough. Lee is persuaded by Lucy to pretend to be gay in order for her to get closer to a new business acquaintance. Lee discovers there's something in it for him, but doesn't find it easy to keep his blokeish insticts hidden.
Lee is becoming increasingly riled by Guy's constant presence in the flat, and his distrust of him is fuelled by the discovery that he runs a lap-dancing club.
Meanwhile. Tim finally seems to have found a girl who he really likes, and of whom Lucy approves. The perfect girl... until Tim finds out what she does for a living.
Lucy is worried about the age gap between her and Guy, a concern that increases when Guy turns up to meet her with his grandson in tow. A family emergency means Lee and Tim are left in charge of the baby, and they prove to be less than perfect babysitters.
In an effort to appear as intellectual as Lucy's friends, Lee shows off his 'knowledge' of the art world, holding forth on the subject of an unknown artist who his cleaner Barbara has told him is the next big thing. When Lucy takes his advice and invests a fortune in the artist's work, Lee is left trying to prevent her from finding out the artist is actually a nobody.
As Lucy and Guy's relationship intensifies, Lee starts to ponder his lack of a girlfriend and, encouraged by Barbara, tries speed dating. Tim is forced to go on a disastrous date with Barbara in order to prove that he sees her as more than 'the help'.
When Guy showers Lucy with expensive clothes prior to whisking her off for a mystery weekend away, Lee becomes suspicious of Guy. After some high-level surveillance, he comes to the conclusion that Guy is gangster.
But Barbara and Tim realise that he is not objecting to Guy just because of his dubious business interests, but also because Lee wants Lucy for himself.
Lee's plan to spend time alone with Lucy at Christmas is threatened by the presence of Tim, Daisy, Tim and Lucy's parents, and even Barbara doing the cooking. All seems to be going well until a murder mystery game brings family tensions to a head.
