      Andy has a new celebrity pal, chat show host Jonathan Ross. However, his friendship with Maggie is under strain and he's just about had enough of his useless agent, who's more interested in a pen than Andy's career.

      Just as Andy is ready to fire his agent, Darren offers him a chance to meet his idol Robert De Niro. But will Andy abandon his real friends to meet his hero?moreless

      Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, asks if he can appear, and sing, in Andy's sitcom much to Andy's reluctance.

      Things soon start to go wrong at the ceremony when he is caught in the wrong place at the wrong time with Ronnie Corbett. And when Maggie tells Andy's former girlfriend another embarrassing secret, she uses this nugget of information to get her own back on Andy for calling her, "the most boring woman in the world".moreless

      First comes the success, then the backlash and the British press aren't about to change the rules. Andy has incurred their wrath and needs some good P.R. Meanwhile, on the set of his new film, Daniel Radcliffe is trying his staggeringly poor chat-up lines on anything female.

      Andy has realised that fame is not all it is cracked up to be, when his sitcom receives terrible reviews.

      The public, however, give him encouragement. He's recognised by a homeless man and his "biggest fan" in a pub.

      But when Andy and his friends head to a classy bar, he discovers that even David Bowie wants to mock him, in the form of a song - "the little fat man who sold his soul".moreless

      Andy Millman is very excited at the prospect of his sitcom - 'When the Whistle Blows', being made by the BBC.

      He knows how he wants it to be: realistic - something the audience can relate to. But the BBC have other ideas - they make Andy's character wear a wig and silly glasses. And they let Keith Chegwin appear in it...

      It's not long before the comedy is totally different to Andy's original ideas. But it's the BBC's money and production team. He can't make it without them...

      Meanwhile, Maggie is an extra on Orlando Blooms latest movie. Orlando is obsessed with himself - and with Maggie. But she doesn't fancy him at all!moreless
