No, it's not the one with Denise primed to give birth on the bathroom floor, this is a brand new one. A new neighbour moves onto the street with an impressive cleavage, 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? Joe next door is looking for love, and places an advert in the Lonely Hearts column, 'Vacant Lady Wanted'. Who could resist? Ricky Tomlinson, Sue Johnston, Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash all return to star in this new festive edition which will see you watching folk watching telly.
