Jeff Lee and Tim Russell, Tricia and Gail's boyfriends, are put off the flat-warming party when they discover that residents like Annie are going but decide to go along anyway.

Guest castEdit



  • This episode had an unusual ending in that once the end credits and music had finished, there was a short epilogue scene of Tricia Hopkins leading boyfriend Jeff Lee from the party into what they thought was an empty room only to find Albert Tatlock already there drunk on sangria. He belched, said "pardon", and the episode proper came to an end.
  • TV Times synopsis: Tricia and Gail throw a party - and Rita gets a visitor.
  • Viewing Figures: First UK broadcast - 7,700,000 homes (6th place).
