Spencer's house is a tip since he was left on his own there, and he tries to persuade the others to help tidy it. He coerces Anika to lend her homework, by threatening Amy. Colin and Nathan goes for an audition for a job in television presenting. Nathan wears his electric blue suit, and is intent on chatting up the receptionist while Colin has the first interview. Nathan's dynamic performance in front of the camera is in stark contrast to Colin's straightforward, slightly nervous act. Neither of them think that they've done very well in the audition. Spencer gets a phone call from his mum telling him she will be another day yet. Miss Fraser's father and little sister arrive from Australia. In the playground, the mystery photographer is spotted by a workman, who calls the police, suspicious of his behaviour. As he's dragged out of his car, he points to Adam, and starts to protest "he's my...." before he's bundled away. At Spencer's house, Darren and Calvin help "tidy" up the house (...
