Shiv arrives with a gorgeous friend, which provides flutterings in the breasts of those who want Usha to find a good man. Usha is getting on well with Shiv’s friend at her party, and, amidst Satya blatantly attempting to match-make, confides in Ruth that she’s agreed to go out to dinner with him.
  • Kirsty tells Tom to be careful with Fallon as she thinks Fallon has a big crush on Tom. Tom initially thinks Kirsty means Lauren, but on realising his mistake, thinks he can use the information.
