Sadly, Nigel’s mother loses the battle against a chronic illness and his father soon begins to spend more and more time with newly-divorced cleaner Mrs Potter (Helena Bonham Carter). Mrs Potter’s cooking proves to be very popular with Mr Slater and the two are quick to embark on a relationship, moving to the countryside despite Nigel’s dislike of his father's new partner.
