With the media storm continuing to dent sales, Malcolm hopes his plain speaking will get the company out of hot water, but his strategy backfires badly.

Keith, the company's long-suffering PR expert, is left dealing with an email inbox peppered with some imaginatively-written complaints.

Winning back public trust is not going to be easy, but can a half-price sale on burgers get people buying them again?

Despite the uncertainty, Malcolm's pressing ahead with opening a new store in the former mining town of Treorchy in Wales.

Meanwhile, senior buyer Alastair needs to find an attention-grabbing name for his newest product—prawns in a rice crispy-style batter.
