Episode Four of Marcella Evaristi's comedy explores the impossibility of retaining your privacy when you lead a go-betweening life.

Joe had wanted to keep his new affair secret. His new girlfriend is twenty four and he now wishes he hadn't called Mimi's most recent ex-husband the Decrepit from Connecticut. Mimi is being badgered about bringing a 'plus one' to a wedding. She's in a state of post divorce fragility and begins to wonder if Joe still secretly longs for her. After all, he brought her lilacs on their wedding anniversary.

Tom, already burdened by having to pretend he doesn't know about Tuberose, his Dad's hot new girlfriend, dreams confusingly and guiltily about the wrong girl. Not his girlfriend Poppy, but Lucy's fifteen year old best friend Katy. He's been talking in his sleep. How do you cope with a leaking subconscious?

Meanwhile, having discovered that Tuberose works at Latex Couture of Holloway, Mimi is talked into checking her out.
