First episode of Series 3.


For their part in capturing Enrique "The Rat" Lopez, the Brits return for their reward, a free holiday. Martin has separated from Kate and brings along the younger, vulgar Brandy, though both insist they are just friends. Mel is opening a shop renting mobility scooters ("You don't have to be a cripple to enjoy your holiday") employing lazy young Paco, and his poolside reunion with Madge is passion personified. Mel gets Mick to publicise the opening by having him ride a twenty foot bike whilst wearing tinfoil, which cooks him in the heat. Everyone turns up for the grand opening - largely because of the free champagne. However, due to an overloaded socket with multiple extension cables leading into it, the shop catches fire.
