Ignore the Monkey

Episode 4 of 6

Comedy series about two teenagers coming to terms with parenthood. Laura confronts Jamie's new girlfriend, but discovers Isabel is no pushover.

Jamie has been seeing Isabel for a few weeks and is enjoying having some carefree fun for once. Laura is hurt and shocked to discover he's in a new relationship and can't believe Jamie has been so easily manipulated. However, Jamie however doesn't see it that way and is happy to finally be in a relationship with a girl who is not blowing hot and cold all the time. Laura realises she may have finally lost him.

While Danielle is in a dilemma about dating her tutor, Beth finds it hard to shake off a lesbian admirer, Poppy. Worried that she has led Poppy on and too PC to rebuff her directly, Beth consults Mike on the best way to alienate women - after all, he's an expert. Mike coaches Beth, Cyrano de Bergerac-style, on how to get dumped.
