But will everything go according to plan?
Elaine’s determined to make The Vic-sponsored Christmas event in the Square a big success, ordering George and the family around. But her plans are tested when things begin to go wrong.
Elsewhere, Yolande starts recruiting for her community choir but with little success.
Later, Elaine can’t resist muscling in when Yolande’s choir recruitment falls flat. But her booze bribery tactics don’t impress her new rival.
And when Yolande isn’t impressed by Elaine trying to take over with the choir, the battle lines are drawn.
