Having completed his rehabilitation course following accusations of sexism and cruelty to his employees, Tony has returned to Martha's sessions a new man - or so he thinks. Chrissie may have got the house and everything in it, but Tony has insisted on having Nobby the Welsh Terrier - even though he can't stand him. He is also about to publish a book, "Men: the Fight Back Starts Here. And this Time it's Serious" - a bit of a mouthful but it sums up his position in a nutshell.

It's mostly 'extras' work but he has already landed an unnamed role in a Games of Thrones style fantasy. He feels that his experience in front of the camera is certain to bring him to the attention of the principal director.

Rabid constituents and demented and disastrous Tinder dates have cast Richard into a new slough of despondency. And then, the one light at the end of the tunnel - an invitation to appear on a popular TV reality show - is extinguished, when he inadvertently publicises his highly confidential invitation in a late night tweet. Richard now faces a sea of ignominy as the producers of the TV show deny all knowledge of him, and the horrible suspicion occurs to him that someone may have been playing a cruel and deeply humiliating prank - leaving Richard in a state of complete and abject despair.
