Mark suggests speaking to Sienna's boss or flatmate and Sienna says they need time to calm down first.

Brad says he's got a huge day. Terese questions him and Brad avoids the question by saying he has to go. Brad sighs outside the front door.
TERESE: Skimmed latte please. Strong!
SHEILA: Ooh! Like your husband!
KARL: What - skinny?
SHEILA: No - strong. You should have seen him doing those yoga poses this morning - he was like one of those Roman God statues. Great thighs!
TERESE: Yeah I have seen them. (Karl shares a look with Terese).
SHEILA: Well if I was you I'd never leave the house especially after the comments I heard this morning. Um, Karl - you should try our yoga. It's very good for people in our age bracket!
KARL: I think you'll find we're in very different brackets, Sheila. (Sheila sighs aloud). You must be pleased that Brad's doing so well.
TERESE: Oh I am. It's great. It's a bit weird though. I'm usually the busy one. I'm finding it hard to get five minutes alone with him at the moment.
KARL: Well - he's doing great PR. (He picks up his phone.) In fact - I think he might have been on the front page of that uh, website - what is it? What's On?
SHEILA: Yeah. The woman whom writes for it - she's in our class.
KARL: Lots of very complimentary compliments at the bottom.
SHEILA: Hey I'll bet they're all from women. And possibly Chris!
KARL: Well it's a cross we have to bear. Athletes and doctors draw a lot of attention.
SHEILA: In your dreams Karl!
TERESE: This is ridiculous. It's all about his looks.
KARL: I know. It's tough being the local heartthrob! If he ever wants to talk to anyone...
TERESE: (She hands Karl's phone to him). I've seen enough thanks.
KARL: Thanks for the coffee. See you later. (He leaves).
SHEILA: And since when did you have a problem with people ogling Brad?
TERESE: I don't.
SHEILA: Oh - it's just a bit of fun. You've never got in a tizz before.
TERESE: And I'm not in a tizz now. Nothing's changed.

She would want him to be happy. Susan says not to overthink things - just what makes him happy.

Paul offers to take care of that for the trial period. Terese accepts this and says he can start straight away. This satisfies Paul.
