Due to his supreme good looks, incredible acting skills and the director's desperation, Alistair has got a part in a film! Fame, fortune and the celebrity lifestyle are but moments away - until Mum announces that the family are to spend the summer travelling round Britain in a caravan while she prepares her new cookery book, Towed in the Hole. Alistair can't possibly be forced to spend the summer cooped up in a caravan, and subject to the vagaries of his granny's bowels and the tortures of his big bro and sis, can he? Major revenge must be unleashed!
