Episode 4 was first broadcast on 28th January 1987. Richie loses his brilliant new game show idea to another entertainer.
Owing to being out of work for three months, Richie comes up with an idea for a brilliant new game show called "Star Golfing Secrets," and pitches it to nice entertainment producer Jumbo Whiffy. Whiffy however cons Richie into signing the rights to the show over to him. Hearing that his father is on his death bed, Richie decides to cash in on it by inviting celebrities to the funeral, but when he recovers he considers murdering him. The plan becomes irrelevant when he receives a letter from his mother telling him she doesn't know who his real father is.
