Episode Recap

Jeremy is annoyed that everyone is coming late for class. Ali arrives later still and when questioned about his lateness, shows Jeremy his new watch that he bought for two pounds fifty from the market.It seems someone has sold him a 'Dud.'!
Fforbes Ffortescue arrives at the school and tells Miss Courtney that Queen Elizabeth will be making a visit to the school. Miss Courtney tells Jeremy and they decorate the school for the royal visit.
Jeremy's students dress in their national costumes and are paraded one by one in the canteen before the Queen's visit.
Miss Courtney would like a member to present a posy of flowers to Her Majesty when she visits and selects Jamilla to do the honours.
Unfortunately for the school, the Queen's schedule is behind and to make up time they drop the visit to the school from the schedule. However, nobody tells Miss Courtney and the others.
When a Mrs Baxter arrives downstairs she bears a stunning resemblance to the Queen. Mrs Baxter is looking for her Husband, Sid sees her and thinks that she's the Queen, so he directs her to the oom where Miss Courtney introduces Jeremy, and Jamilla offers her the posy which she takes reluctantly.
Miss Courtney offers her a cup of tea and as they walk into her office Jeremy looks out the window to see the Royal party driving past the school.
