Xmas Party

Caravan Club is the fifth episode of the first series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on May 22nd, 2008 on E4.


Jay invites the rest of the gang to come to a branch of the Caravan Club with his family, in order to prove that he has been successful with women. Jay promises his friends they will meet a girl and even gives Simon the number of a seemingly sexy teenage girl.

Will, Simon and Neil arrive and their experience does not get off to a good start - as the boys are eating dinner in the Cartwright's caravan, Jay’s dad goes to the toilet in a loud and unhygienic manner.

Later, the boys head off to the main building in the complex for a disco. Will is offered sex by a punk girl but loses his chance when he decides to take his shoes off and slide across the hall floor instead. After some flirty text exchanges, Simon tries his luck with a girl who Jay claims to have had sex with in the past. However, when he leads her outside and takes his pants off, she is shocked and reveals she doesn’t want sex, before running inside to tell her parents. Meanwhile, Will’s shoes have been stolen by a group of eight year olds, and he takes to getting one of them into a headlock to get them back. The boys then head off - albeit without Neil, who cannot be found - before Simon can get in trouble for his earlier stunt with the girl.

The following morning, the boys find Neil and he explains that he slept in Simon's car. However, it is only on the dual-carriageway on the way home that Neil reveals that he spent the night with the punk girl, who earlier rejected Will, and had been performing sex acts on each other in Simon’s car, prompting a disgusted reaction from his friends who had been commenting on their wet seats.
