A night in front of the TV calls for a tray of the best homemade treats, so James is preparing squid with the ultimate dipping sauce as well as the perfect finger food: a British tapas of chicken wings and wedges with his own tomato sauce.

Plus the show takes a trip to County Durham to meet Catherine and Richard Furze, who have turned their love of American popcorn into a thriving business. Meanwhile, historian Ivan Day recreates the favourite finger food from the Frost Fairs of yesteryear - mutton pies and baked pippins.
