Barbara's Old Ring

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Royles', and Barbara has gone overboard with the presents - 'If you can't spoil your family at Christmas, when can you?' she asks, having spent a whole two hours in a pound shop.

A new neighbour with an impressive cleavage moves onto the street, but will she be welcome on the sofa? In a flash of seasonal entrepreneurial spirit, Dave reveals the idea he intends to pitch to Dragons' Den. Will it take off and make them rich? Or is Jim's scratch card more likely to bring in the Christmas cheer?

Next door, Joe is looking for love and places an advert in a Lonely Hearts column, reading 'Vacant Lady Wanted'. Who could resist?
