Episode Summary

Hooked On A Feeling
Paula has never felt anything but sisterly love for Gary; that is until she offers to give him a massage! As he stretches out on the floor, half naked, she realises that her feelings have changed. The realisation takes Paula by surprise and she tries to fathom out how to approach the subject with Gary. Meanwhile, the lads have noticed that Harold, the sports club manager, has had a distinct spring in his step of late. They decide it must be down to his new admirer, Mrs Hopewell, who has been frequenting the sports club of late with her friends from the pensioner's club. It's apparent that Harold is also attracted to Mrs Hopewell. However, when she finally plucks up the courage to tell him how she feels and offers herself up to him, Harold freezes. He's petrified! Gary, who's been doing some decorating at the sports centre, overhears the conversation. He's determined to get them together and enlists the help of Paula. However, their plan backfires when Harold and Mrs Hopewell realise they have been lured to the venue under false pretences. They are furious and hurt that Gary and Paula have meddled in their affairs. Gary, confused as to why Harold is so reluctant to start a relationship with Mrs Hopewell, quizzes him. Harold finally reveals a long laboured secret and a vow never to fall in love again. Despite being totally in love with his wife, who died some years earlier, he was, to his eternal regret, once unfaithful to her. Later, back at home, Gary finds one of his T-shirts hidden under Paula's pillow. At first he's baffled. But it later dawns on him that Paula must have feelings for him. He realises that he's also attracted to her. Gary's keen to tell her how he feels. Paula, convinced that Gary will never feel the same about her, decides to get back on the dating scene. She accepts a drink with builder, Tony. While Harold and Mrs Hopewell put their previous awkwardness behind them to discover if there is anything between them, Gary's shocked to discover Paula snogging Tony. All the time that he's been searching for his perfect match, she's been under his nose, but has he realised this too late?moreless
