After the end of his chat show and the divorce from his wife Carol, Alan is now living in Linton Travel Tavern and presenting the early morning slot on Radio Norwich. After viewing a 5 bedroom house with his P.A., Lynne, Alan has a meeting with the BBC Chief Commissioner, Tony Hayers, who he needs to impress if he is to be given a second series.
It's Valentines day and love is in the air. Alan is distributing 'Chocolate Oranges' to every female under 50 while dealing with the fact that he cannot afford to keep his Rover 800 without sacking all the staff at Peartree Productions.
Just as he is ready to be the presenter of a boating holiday promotional video, Alan manages to insult Norfolk's farmers on his radio show.
Since Alan is the only weekend guest at the hotel, the manager of the Linton Travel Tavern decides to close it for renovation.
Alan creates a Sunday afternoon version of his radio show, inviting some executives from Irish TV over to witness the production at the travel tavern.
New developments at the BBC give Alan hope that he may be able to return to TV.
