First episode of Series 5.


A busload of guests including Noreen, Gavin minus Troy, and Sam with her raucous friend Trudy arrive at the Solana, unlike their luggage which got lost along the way. There are several changes - Madge has lost her bar, Kenneth has opened his own salon with local Carmen as his assistant, and Liam is the complex's clumsy odd job man. Most significantly Janey has gone, replaced by snooty Joyce Temple-Savage, who aims to make the Solana more up-market - or at least efficient, having arrived incognito and been shocked by what she sees. This leads to open conflict with Madge and the near demise of Jacqueline and Donald, who has returned from the dead and a jail sentence for faking his death to claim insurance, whilst Sam, having broken her leg last year, has yet another mishap.
