His first call is to the Dingles’, where he tries to turn down a plate of food, knowing that he has two further trips to make. No such luck! Next, it’s round to Rishi’s, where more festive fare awaits him. And as he hauls himself down the street after round two, Bernice takes him in and serves up yet another meal.

Following this endurance test, Liam will then be seen sharing a charged moment with Bernice, which ends in a kiss. But might he have bitten off more than he can chew?
