Ellie is the girl on the train

Ellie was furious at the weekend because the blatant disregard for train etiquette when she was coming back from Edinburgh. She had to move to let another lady in to the seat next to her and they had a quick chat. Ellie then said 'sorry I'm going to have to be boring and sleep because I've only had a few hours' sleep'. Ellie shut her eyes and then ten seconds later the lady asked her another question… she opened her eyes slowly to emphasise she was sleeping and then shut her eyes again. Ten seconds later the lady asked another question… ELLIE IS SLEEPING PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE!

Ellie then revealed she likes to use the train as a setting for an imaginary movie. She stares out the window puts on some emotional music and just imagines an award-winning monologue. Turns out she's not the only one as Karen rang up and says she does the same thing, and imagines she's in music videos. Specifically Will Young's music videos, which we all thought was a bit strange.

Ben is having a parenting dilemma. They have reintroduced the naughty step but Nick has turned it around on them after they found him having a nap on the naughty step. Nick now goes to the naughty step when Ben and Jess annoy him, thus giving him all the power. He won't leave the naughty step until they give him what he wants. Evil genius.
