Steve McDonald and Vikram Desai are heading to Calais to buy a bulk load of cigarettes and alcohol. Vikram discovers they are going via Brighton to see Steve's ex-wife Vicky. On arrival at "Vicky's" - a wine bar she owns - they find she is about to re-marry. Steve plans to rekindle his relationship with her so he can get his hands on her money and wine bar; he bets Vik £100 he can stop the wedding. Bet Gilroy returns from Tenerife to help with the wedding preparations. She finds out from unsuspecting Vikram about the bet and, in revenge, shops Steve to Dover customs.
