It’s check in time at The Solana for Noreen (Elsie Kelly) who, this year has brought her irritable daughter Pauline (Selina Griffiths) along. Pauline has spent the past few years in South Africa with her husband but is now going through a messy divorce. 

There’s trouble in store for Sam (Shelley Longworth) and Natalie (Kathryn Drysdale) as they hit a nightclub with Liam (Adam Gillen ) and mayhem ensues. 

Les/Lesley (Tim Healey) on the other hand is settling in fine at the pool bar but his/her efficiency is getting on Mateo’s (Jake Canuso) nerves and he hatches a plan to try to get rid of him/her. 

To take their mind off of Madge’s (Sheila Reid) financial woes, the Garveys decide to head to a water park and when Noreen and Pauline show up events take a bit of an unexpected turn. 

In an effort to raise Madge’s spirits Donald (Kenny Ireland) and Jacqueline (Janine Duvitski) decide to have a whip round to help her back on to her feet. But, in true Madge Harvey style, she’s not entirely appreciative of their efforts.
