Ben is delightfully surprised when Saskia offers him private tutoring, a shot at a major part, and accepts, despite Tara's wining about her experience, after the first pas de deux trial is a triumphal proof that they match perfectly. Christian and Tara find out about Kat's eating disorder. Oli is not amused when his embarrassing rap song 'in progress', which Christian found sneakily searching is PC, is posted on Internat by Abi, and dares her to attend a hip-hop dance class with him, which she can't handle, so he calls her a serial quitter.
