This week,Val arrives home to find that Roger has had yet another run in with Phil - his boss at the Winter Gardens. Roger's father is also critically ill in hospital. Plus there's the job of re-hanging the freshly laundered dining room curtains - courtesy of Year 9 - in the newly painted dining room.

If you want real predictability, tune into Pete Vs Life on Channel 4 also at 10.00pm.
