Seventh and final episode of Series 5.


When elegant Barbara Simmonds arrives, Joyce is convinced she is the hotel inspector who will give the Solana its fourth star, so it is not a good idea for Joyce and Kenneth, angry because his salon has been closed for non-payment of rent, to start brawling in front of her. To compensate, Joyce offers Ms Simmonds free beauty treatment, but of course she has been misinformed, though fortunately she is able to bribe the real inspector. The Stewarts seek the help of the consul to see off Donald's heavy ex-cell mates, but Mick has to admit failure when he tells Madge that all her - unbeknown to her uninsured - tanning shops burned down, though Michael still has faith in him.
