The full summary on Radio Times says: “Nish arrives at No 41 to tell Suki the solicitor has sent both copies of their divorce paperwork to him but he has another reason for visiting.

“George gets his hopes up when Elaine asks him to come over but she just wants him to cover the bar while she's out.

This will be followed by Spider-Man: No Way Home being shown from 7.45pm.
