With family and friendships under strain and a guinea-pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
