"Pictured today leaving Heathrow Airport for their honeymoon in Hawaii, Francis Scully of England and Liverpool fame, and his beautiful bride, Joanna. When asked, Joanna said, 'We first fell in love when I saw Francis playing Fairy Godmother in Cinderella. He just waved his magic wand at me, and that was that'."

Mad Dog has a big decision to make when Isaiah sees an opportunity to get his man, reality hit Skully when he sees Kenny Dalglish in the flesh, and Mooey gets excited about going to the Shetlands to see the donkeys.
