Anthony (Matt Lapinskas) has been interested in Amira (Preeya Kalidas) for some time, and he's delighted next week when she invites him to a family lunch at the Masood household.
Zainab (Nina Wadia) has organised the meal to cheer up Tamwar (Himesh Patel), who is still refusing to speak to anyone following his release from hospital.
While the Masoods are surprised by Amira's choice of dinner guest, she privately explains to Zainab that she likes the way Anthony brightens up her life by treating her like a princess.

As the meal gets under way, Anthony goes all-out to impress the family with some dubious claims - including how he's about to start a Pakistani cooking course!
While the Masoods aren't convinced by Anthony's lies, will Amira be charmed by his attempts to impress?
