Despite Will’s objections, Gilbert has him on front-of-house duty, collecting the money on the evening of the show. No problem, it’s the perfect opportunity for Will to stage a moral protest, which is going well until a special guest turns up.
Meanwhile, Neil’s got an idiot-proof plan to get backstage and have a look at some naked models/girls from school.
Simon’s the only one of our heroes to be asked to strut about on the runway and – unbelievably – Carli even asks him to step in when things start to go pear shape.
