The freedom of your first ever holiday with your mates.
This programme contains some strong language.
Where everyone's up for it and anything goes.
and that all-important independence.
A chance to get away from Mum and Dad.
If my mum saw me right now, she'd be like, "what?!"
But, on this holiday, the parents are coming too.
-I can't stand it.
-And outrageously hiding.
All to see if their kids can stand on their own two feet.
-I think it's pretty disgusting.
-She's gone for a vajazzle.
This is not what a mum wants to see.
But will it bring them closer together...
I love that boy so much.
..or drive them further apart?
-Oh my God!
It's highs, lows,
and very bad behaviour in Ibiza.
As good boy Ollie breaks away from over-motherly Lynn...
My nickname for him is Munchkin.
..for his first ever trip abroad.
My mum would be like that...
And 19 year-old drama student Shannon
escapes her over-protective dad...
I'm am the Antichrist. I grow horns, big teeth, I snarl a lot.
..to attempt going it alone to prove her independence.
I have hurt myself.
-But how will the parents react?
-I'm not comfortable watching this.
-I need to calm down.
When they get a bird's-eye view
as they spy on their kids' every move.
-Victory for Dad.
-She's far too old for him.
And then turn up and terrify Shannon...
In Preston, Shannon is looking forward
to some freedom away from her mum Jo and over-protective dad Gerry.
I'm going to Ibiza.
I will worry when you get to Ibiza
because if you need me, I can't be there like that.
I'm growing up now, and that's how it's going to be.
You're not always going to be there. I'm not your little girl no more.
Hmm... You'll always be my little girl, always.
In Preston, Shannon is very well protected.
My dad was the head bouncer in Preston about ten years ago.
And everyone knows him.
She knows she can't get up to things because Dad will find out.
These shoes, I love cos they're bright colours
and I like wearing bright stuff.
Shoes I don't like, and some of the skirts I don't like.
This is my pair of shorts. Rather small.
And they go right up my bum, as well.
Some of the tops I don't like, in fact, I don't like a lot of them.
My mum and dad don't really like me wearing short things,
but I usually go out of the house wearing a pair of leggings
and then have a little stash of mini-skirt or something in my bag
and when I get to my friend's house I put it on.
Then I come home with my leggings back on.
I'm going to go wild.
I am the Antichrist. I grow horns, big teeth, I snarl a lot.
THEY ALL LAUGH
I drink to get drunk, I like to drink a lot.
ALL: # We're going to Ibiza... #
And helping Shannon to party hard is...
It's going to be a huge party.
..rock chick Georgia.
If the guy's fit and available, you know...?
You have to put sun cream on when you go on holiday.
And Jayne, the mummy of the group.
Cream... Why are you taking baby oil?
Because I like to put it on my legs.
-OK, not for sun, though.
You'll burn if you just put that on in the sun.
Shannon has a burning ambition for the coming year.
My plan for the future is to go to London
and get a nice flat and just perform in the West End.
This holiday is her chance to show them she can go it alone.
I don't think she's ready to move out yet,
-she's not responsible enough.
-We're always there.
I want to prove to my mum and dad that I can look after myself,
and I can handle my money,
it's also proving it for myself as well.
I love you. Love you, Dad.
Have fun, but be careful. Bye.
Bye. SHE GIGGLES
I will, I will be careful.
Bye, see you soon.
See you sooner than you think.
Portsmouth born-and-bred Ollie is studying a B-tech in sport.
He's about to jet off on his first ever lads' holiday.
Here's your toiletries, that's your aftersun.
Make sure you put that on. There's your sunscreen.
Make sure you put it on,
especially on your neck. There's your lip stuff.
-Don't forget to put your hat on as well.
This is Ollie's chance to escape over-motherly Lynn.
My nickname for Oliver is Munchkin.
When he was little,
he was quite small and the name's just stuck.
I'm looking forward to having independence.
Getting too drunk, exposing myself.
Not have my mum running after me every five seconds.
I can't see me getting homesick.
My biggest worry would be he'd have too much to drink.
I like drinking a lot. I drink when I can.
But not all booze is to Munchkin's taste.
When I go out I like to drink spirits,
but if I'm at the football
and I want to look a bit tough then I might get a pint.
-How much of a test will it be for you?
-I'm a good boy.
What are you going to eat when you're over there?
Make sure you have a breakfast, at least.
Ollie really wants Mum to see him as a man and not as a munchkin.
Doing this trip will make me feel like
I'm a bit more responsible than what my mum thinks.
I only see the son, I don't see what he's like with his friends
or how he behaves when we're not there.
Flying off to the party capital with Ollie is...
-What's the plan with the girls?
-Get anything you can.
It has got to be about numbers and quality, surely.
Are you taking your tux?
And Joe, the joker of the pack.
-I'm not taking my tux.
-Because it looks ridiculous.
'I think the holiday I'm going on to Ibiza'
will blow every holiday I've had out of the water.
Which won't be hard as Ollie's only ever visited England.
And don't forget your passport.
'I've never been abroad.'
The furthest I've been is County Durham.
-That one was brilliant in Devon.
And he's not alone.
Ollie's dad Harry has never owned a passport.
I have never been abroad. Never been out of the country.
I love England, Devon, Cornwall, Hastings, Kent.
Green and pleasant land.
Can't get this off my feet, ow.
-I love you.
-I love you too.
I have never been abroad.
We're going to Ibiza!
Little does Ollie know, Dad does now have a passport.
Got your suntan?
-Yes, it's all packed up in the case.
He's not going to know what hit him.
And neither will Shannon, as her mum and dad
are also heading to Ibiza.
Ibiza, one of the Balearic islands
just of the south coast of Spain.
Surrounded by the glorious Mediterranean sea.
But more famous for its reputation as the clubbing capital of Europe.
Heaving with young British tourists,
clubbers fly into the resort looking for a 24-hour non-stop party.
Touching down to join in the fun are the Preston girls.
Ibiza, girls! I can't wait.
Have you seen the guys already?
I feel like I'm on a sunbed.
THEY ALL LAUGH
Excited by the arrival at their hotel,
the girls forget something they might need.
It smells like lemons.
Do I need my bag?! Excuse me.
Just check the guy in the car behind us.
Come and give us a hand, you cheeky bastard.
Shannon and Jayne quickly head into the hotel
to check out their room.
Oh no, I just dropped my passport.
Not the safest place to leave your passport.
Oh, my God, look at the view.
That is gorgeous.
Shannon has already forgotten where she left that vital document.
Oh my God, where's my passport?
Oh, my passport is on the floor.
Oh my God.
I thought you're supposed to be looking after me, Jayne.
I told you to keep hold of my passport.
You had your passport.
From now on you're looking after that, I can't do it.
I feel like a bit of an idiot really.
I have only just got here
and I have left my passport on the floor, didn't even realise.
But Jayne's going to take care of it.
It's the first night of the holiday
and the girls can't wait to get dressed up and ready to party.
I'm am the organiser, definitely. Looking after people's passports.
Money, making sure they know where they're going,
make sure they're listening, a lot of people don't listen.
And they don't listen to any instructions
which is bad because anything could happen here.
Jayne's like the mum of the group, Shannon is probably the diva.
She likes showing off and stuff, but it's in a good way.
She's not over the top where people get annoyed.
Georgia's a bit of everything in the group,
she's the funny one, she's a rock chick kind of thing.
Me, I just go along with the group,
but I have my little things that probably annoy people.
I'm funny as well.
The Portsmouth lads have landed,
and for Ollie it's his first time on foreign soil.
It's night, but it's hotter here than Portsmouth.
20 degrees probably, hottest I've ever had.
And that was overcast.
Looks all right, doesn't it?
But what does Ollie think of his first foreign hotel?
Better than any place I've ever been.
Shits on Butlins, doesn't it?
Looks like me and Joe were bunking up together.
-I think I might have to separate the beds a little bit.
-Look at the bungee thing.
-I ain't fucking doing that.
You know now you've said you're not doing it, you're definitely doing it?
The bright lights and buzz of Ibiza is every teenager's dream.
But Ollie is easing himself into foreign territory
by heading to a pub that reminds him of home.
The atmosphere around the bar is very homey.
It's welcoming. Very British.
You get me?! You get me?!
On the main strip,
the Preston girls are getting into the spirit of Ibiza.
What the girls don't know
is that Shannon's mum and dad are on the next flight.
All the parents have flown in
and they are about to meet up for the very first time.
-Who have you got here?
I have got Oliver, my son. You?
My daughter Shannon.
Is this your daughter's first holiday abroad?
Yes. Without us, yes.
-How do think she'll get on?
-All right, I think she'll love it.
I think she'll love the freedom.
I hope she'll have a really good time,
but I just want her to be careful.
-Is this Oliver's first time?
We've normally done holidays together, haven't we, in England?
He's never even been abroad or anything. Do you work?
I work in a bowling alley. I used to be a bouncer.
And partner Jo was once a podium dancer.
Me and Gerry was here a year ago. We've been in all these bars.
In contrast, Harry is a ship building supervisor
and Lynn a stay-at-home mum.
-What you're going to see - scary.
Gerry might get a shock himself when he sees Shannon's version of Ibiza.
There is an awful lot of bars here.
Getting his first glimpse
of a foreign resort, it's all new to Harry.
I've been on a lads' holiday. Hastings.
Haven Holiday Camp, six lads in a caravan.
I think it will be a shock for Harry to see what goes on over here.
If he's never been abroad before,
we were here this time last year,
so we've seen it all. We know what goes on.
Jo and Gerry are slightly different to us,
they've been to Ibiza.
They seem to like the nightclubs and stuff,
we tend not to, do we? Go to places like...
I wouldn't say we don't like them, it's not something we have tried.
Me being a protective father, normally Shannon's out there...
And not knowing I'm here will be an interesting experiment, I think.
I'm loving the freedom. I've drank way over the limit, I think.
Every time I see a black man, I think it's my dad!
As the girls party on into the night,
Ollie finally leaves the comfort of a British pub
to test the water on the street.
Two shots of absinthe.
Ibiza! Ollie! IBIZA!
This is our first night in Ibiza, and Lewis is fucked!
Lewis may be incapable but reliable Ollie comes to the rescue.
I think the first night went well, until we ended up with this.
3am, and, thanks to Lewis,
Ollie's first night abroad is well and truly over.
On the other side of the island,
it's Harry's first day in a foreign land,
and the first time both sets of parents
get to watch what their kids have been up to.
If it was my first night here as an 18-year-old lad,
I'd get up to much the same as Oliver.
I'd probably be found in the gutter! Very sick.
I don't think she'll be responsible.
I think she'll have been wild last night because it's all new.
What Shannon is doing now was me 20 years ago,
which is probably what's worrying because I know what girls get up to.
Are you ready for this?
Oh my God, where's my passport?
"Where's my passport". See? Lost it already.
You said she'd lose it!
My passport is on the floor.
See, she can't look after herself.
From now on, you're looking after that.
Mum and Dad's not there, give it to someone else.
This is the responsibility we talked about.
-So are you ready for this, then?
Welcoming. Very British.
He's not gone right out in the main town though, he's hit a quiet bar.
A bar, yes. I thought he might, to start with,
rather than hit the clubs.
That does concern me a bit.
Two shots of absinthe.
They're being normal lads so far.
-Oh, look at him.
-It's Lewis. It's Lewis.
-Is Ollie there?
-He's carrying him home.
That wasn't too bad. Ollie was all right, he was looking after him,
so he can't have been that drunk because he knew what he was doing.
You worry that he's going to have too much to drink
and I'm not there to look after him,
even though I know I should accept the fact that he's growing up,
and that I have to let go. But he still needs some looking after.
I think Oliver will let his hair down definitely
tomorrow night on his birthday.
Erm... I'm quite dreading that one.
Shannon losing her passport last night, it is a major thing.
In my opinion, Shannon couldn't move out and be on her own
because she's just not responsible enough yet.
Back in San Antonio, Ollie and the boys
are soaking up the alcohol
with the best of British.
-Yeah, four English. Cheers.
Oh! What's that?
It's Ollie's first foreign experience
but he's sticking to what he knows.
Don't want to try any Spanish stuff. Not yet, not yet.
As the lads devour their home comforts,
they discuss their first night on the town.
My mum would just laugh at me.
My nan would be very disappointed, I reckon.
I think my mum would like, if she saw me like that, she'd be like...
"Absolute knob. Absolute knob." But my dad would probably just laugh.
The Preston girls have hit the beach to start tanning,
and Shannon has already forgotten her promises to Mum.
Baby oil, 50% free. And I've used it all!
Look how much has gone today!
-You're going to cook.
-We'll see, won't we? I don't think I will.
It's really good having a lot of freedom, I'm loving it.
I can chat to anyone without nobody watching me,
seeing who the guys are. I can drink as much as I want.
I'm kind of looking forward to, like, leaving home
and moving on and being an adult and stuff,
but then I'd like to see if I say this at the end of the week.
I think my mum worries too much.
She's always like,
"Oh, make sure you don't drink this and make sure you drink water
and make sure you look after that, and watch out for this."
It's just like... Please!
With Mum's concerns at the forefront of Shannon's mind,
she heads to the off-licence.
My mother told me not to drink this. Absinthe.
I've heard that it's illegal in England so I'm having some!
I'll have a yellow one.
I'll just take one because I don't know what it'll be like.
So, if this is 80%, am I all right just to drink this
all in one and then that's it, I won't drink any more?
I don't know but I'll probably drink more afterwards.
Absinthe, I'm going to try it, see what it's like,
see what effects it gives me.
-What do you drink it with? Do you drink it straight?
-Straight, yeah. You shot it.
-Do you? Thanks very much.
-Gracias. What's goodbye in Spanish?
The Portsmouth posse are in search of some adrenaline,
and the 100 mile an hour ride,
reaching over 100 metres in the air, seems to fit the bill.
It's a lot bigger when you're next to it!
It's got to be done.
The boys may be terrified of the Slingshot,
but not as scared as Ollie will be
when he realises Mum and Dad are watching his every move.
I'd be pleased if Oliver didn't do it.
From my point of view, I don't want to see him hurled through the air.
Ollie's parents are just metres away, tucked behind a wall,
watching everything on a monitor.
They're the other side, aren't they?
A human catapult, every thrill-seeking teenager's dream,
and, Ollie's first time away from Mum,
it's a chance to try something adventurous.
-100% no. I'm not doing it.
-Yeah, he's said he's not going to do it.
Joe's up for it.
-It's my idea of a laugh...
-I'm quite happy he's sticking to his guns.
-Three, two, one!
Look at that!
Yeah, that was all right.
-I don't know if I've shit myself or not. Go on, Ollie.
-No, I'm not.
-Nothing that high, nothing that high.
Joe's trying to apply some pressure. I don't think it's working.
No, I'm not going on that.
-I'm going to go again.
Yeah, I know, it's going to be fucking scary.
Ben's giving the Slingshot a go
so it's just Munchkin who's playing it safe.
-Three, two, one!
It's not as scary as I thought it would be. I'm glad I did it.
We found it a bit hairy because once or twice we're sure
one of the lads saw us but obviously it didn't register.
I'm quite pleased that he didn't do it, for his sake,
he stuck to his guns which I'm quite proud of him for, so good boy.
I didn't feel pressured into it. Put my foot down, that's it.
No-one's changing my mind!
Both me and Oliver are going through a learning curve.
He's trying to come to grips
with the fact that he's abroad for the first time.
Ditto me, but he's being challenged, I'm not.
He wasn't keen about taking part in the slingshot.
We're only young so we're immature at times,
but Ollie is probably the most mature out of all of us.
Maybe like an old man trapped in a...
Yeah, an old man trapped in a young man's body.
As Ibiza prepares for another party night,
protective dad Gerry is worried that Shannon will be abusing her freedom.
Shannon's outfits I don't approve of. They're very...revealing.
I used to dance in clubs when I was Shannon's page,
so mine was more of a stage outfit.
Covered up a bit more when I was out.
Covered up a bit more when I was out with my friends!
Not much more!
I've decided I'm wearing this cos I can do.
-Can I borrow this belt?
-Yeah, of course you can.
Fucking hell, Georgie, you're letting me borrow your stuff!
I love it. I think she looks ace.
She'll get so much attention tonight.
I just like what I'm wearing. Should I have this or not?
I'd rather her be wearing a habit, covered from here to ankle
all the way down in black so nobody can see nothing.
Ollie and the Portsmouth lads have decided to have a quiet night in.
Chug, chug, chug, chug, chug, chug!
The draw of Ibiza's club scene is yet to entice Ollie.
Instead, it's off to bed for an early night.
Unlike the Portsmouth boys,
the girls from Preston are only just beginning.
Shannon leaves her drinks unattended to hit the dancefloor.
MUSIC: "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" by Beyonce
After strutting her stuff, Shannon retrieves her drinks.
This is something that I left on the side before.
But I'm just going to drink it anyway. It's fine.
It doesn't look like it's got anything floating in it.
After a night of boogie-ing, booze and boys,
the girls head back to the hotel.
-No, I can't be bothered. It's fine.
-Not the roundabout.
Let's go to the crossing.
-I just can't get over.
-Right, Jayne, get to the crossing now!
She nearly got run over by crossing the road.
What the fuck are you doing? Get back here now!
It's day three of the holiday,
and a special day for Munchkin.
-Hiya. Happy Birthday.
-Do you want to speak to your dad?
-Yeah, put him on.
-How's the weather?
-Is it? It's overcast here.
-I'm just sat out by the pool at the moment.
Have a really nice day and I'll see you when you get back, OK?
Yeah, see you when I get back. Bye.
I do miss him, so it was nice to hear his voice.
I hope that he enjoys himself. Don't get too carried away,
but there's nothing wrong with getting drunk.
The parents prepare themselves before viewing
the latest action from the kids.
My main concerns are her losing things - money, phone, passport.
My job is to protect her, that's my job.
If I'm not around to protect her, that's when it becomes my concern.
Let's watch, shall we?
It's not his birthday yet.
Over his head. All over.
-Typical boys night in so far.
-Wasting all that beer!
Are these the drinks?
Don't drink that if you don't...
This is something that I left on the side before.
But I'm just going to drink it anyway.
-Put it down!
-Don't drink anything if you don't know it's not your glass.
Don't look like it's got anything floating in it.
No, it doesn't float, Shannon, it melts.
This is what I'm saying - responsible.
-That last bit has really annoyed me.
-What, the drink bit?
It has really wound me up.
I told her, if she ever put her drink down and walked away from it,
-don't ever go back to it.
-I do understand your concern,
-especially with picking the drink up.
-I've worked doors for years,
I've seen so many girls put a drink down,
some lad has put something in there.
They don't know the consequences of what could happen there
from just picking up that one drink
that somebody may have done something to is far-reaching.
She was told in no uncertain terms, if you put your drink down
and you walk away from it, don't ever go back to it.
If it was my daughter, I'd feel exactly the same.
-I need to calm down.
There's things that I'm not pleased that she's doing.
No way am I pleased, but you're getting frustrated
as you want to do something about it.
I'll only step in as it gets to a certain stage
and say, "That's enough."
You're actually getting quite mad, aren't you?
Some of the things I'm seeing are opening my eyes
more so to the fact of, "Hang on a minute,
"Maybe what I'm doing is not enough... And I need to do more."
If Shannon goes out, she will have a bodyguard,
literally near enough have a bodyguard
-every time she turns around.
-She'll hate it.
-She'll hate it,
but it's her own fault as it's what she's showing
me now - she can't be responsible enough to listen to good advice.
My prediction for tonight with Oliver - plenty of drinking.
I think most fathers would want to see their sons have a good time
because once they're married it stops.
The girls have decided that the best way to cure their hangover
is a trip out to sea on inflatables.
After watching last night's antics, Shannon's parents are eager
to take a much closer look at their daughter.
I just hope she doesn't get tipped in the water.
After what I saw this morning, a dunking should sort her head out.
-Pay her back for drinking the drink.
-In the drink.
-In the drink for drinking the drink, that's it.
I'm really scared.
So, they're just in front of us, just there.
I am a bit scared as I get travel sick.
And when it comes to doing stuff like this, I don't know,
I'm a bit of a shitbag.
So I hope I'm not sick.
I'll do anything. I'll jump off a cliff, I'm not bothered.
-I just want to get in there.
-Drag her in already!
Here we go! THEY SCREAM
They're going. They've gone. That's it, they have gone.
Oh, my God!
Oh, my God! Who's going to be the first one off?
-They will get flipped off. They are going to get flipped.
Somebody's gone in.
Yes! Victory for Dad!
-My hair extensions just come out.
-Just what he wanted. In the drink.
Maybe next time when she puts her drink down, she'll remember this.
-I just loved it.
-Yeah, but you love everything, don't you?
-It was an experience. I'll give it that!
-An experience. Gosh!
-I'd be disappointed if I'd said no.
-We were behind that hedge there
and the girls were just in front of that white car.
We could literally reach out and touch them.
But they had no idea we were there at all.
We're just off now to get Ollie a little surprise for his birthday,
maybe some kind of costume or fancy dress.
Skimpy things are the way forward.
If there's no skimpy things, women's clothing, possibly.
While the lads are out shopping,
Ollie has time to think about turning 19 abroad.
I've not really gone a birthday without family,
but they've made the effort to do some cards for me.
This one's definitely from my mum.
She's wrote "Munchkin", which is the name that I've always had
because it's kind of embarrassing.
"Have a great day, Munchkin. Lots of love, Mum and Dad."
It's cute! HE LAUGHS
Notice the extended figure!
-I don't know if he'd wear it.
-Get him one of these as well.
An "I am horny" tie?
"Girls on tour" - no way.
"Happy Birthday!" That is the one.
In her hotel room, Shannon is making the most of being her own boss.
Can you imagine when I live in my own what I'm going to be like?
It's an absolute tip.
Em... Oh, my God!
Look how dirty it is.
But, like, the dirtiness, it's for the maid, isn't it?
I wouldn't have my house like this, I'd have a cleaner.
Ollie's in for a surprise
as the lads have an extra special outfit for the birthday boy.
You've dressed up nicely - you're getting changed.
Getting changed, mate, I'm afraid.
In the red! With the tie on.
Oh, my days! I hope no-one gets any up-skirt pictures.
-You're not allowed to wear boxers.
It makes it easier to get a tattoo just here now.
My mum would be like that...
If she saw me, she'd be like that...
There's a possibility she could see your bollocks.
Yeah, but still. If my mum sees my bollocks, she's like that...
Little does Ollie know that Mum and Dad
will be celebrating his birthday with him.
Right outside the club, Lynn and Harry are hidden in a van,
watching all the action on a monitor.
He looks quite good in a skirt.
-He could have shaved his legs!
He's certainly keeping his liquids up, it's just the wrong kind.
Seeing him on his 19th birthday, I think,
has been really, really nice because we wouldn't have been invited.
My 19th birthday, I don't remember dressing up in a skirt and,
if I'm honest, I don't remember a lot about it at all.
If drinking culture and been like that when I was younger,
it would have put pressure on you.
I think sometimes they have to drink just to keep up.
Our culture was the pub - and that was it.
And nine times out of 10, you just drunk the same drink all night.
I like to make out that I'm an angel and I don't drink,
which is a complete lie.
They think they're the only ones that have been out and partied
and had a good time with a drink.
On the other side of the strip, the girls are having a tamer evening.
I'm being a good girl tonight but I'm still leaving Jayne with my bag.
She's still being the mummy tonight.
Meanwhile, the Portsmouth boys are hitting it hard.
Puker tonight is going to be Joe or me.
It's a race.
Bleurgh! All over that dancefloor. No!
Be careful what you wish for, Ollie.
I dropped my chicken burger!
I don't ever want to go home. I want to pull.
I want to go home. I don't want to go home.
I want to get in that pool.
I was really up for a massive bar crawl tonight.
We've gone to Linekers and he's thrown up everywhere. No!
Is that yours?
Despite throwing up everything possible,
amazingly, the short skirt and kipper tie
-seem to have worked in Ollie's favour.
And this one. And this one.
The birthday boy is finally getting into the spirit of Ibiza -
as the lads end their night at 5am.
I want my mum!
MUSIC: "Hello Mother, Hello Father"
After a heavy night celebrating his 19th,
Ollie and the boys are struggling to stir.
Ollie's first trip overseas and first time away from his parents
is giving him time to reflect about his future.
-My birthday was the best night I've ever had ever.
Knowing I don't have to go home and have my mum going, "You're a state."
I've always wanted to go backpacking in Canada, Australia.
Coming here's made me more interested in travelling.
On the other side of the island,
the parents are yet to witness yesterday's antics.
I'm looking forward to seeing what he got up to on his 19th,
but there is a bit of dreading it.
I want my son to have a good time.
Your 19th birthday don't come round every day.
I don't want to see him get too drunk that he's fallen over.
I don't want to see him being sick.
I'm actually relieved to see that she's still safe
and she's unharmed and still enjoying herself,
so I like seeing her.
-I don't. It's cringe-vision.
It's an absolute tip.
Oh, my God! Look how dirty it is.
But, like, the dirtiness, it's for the maid, isn't it?
Is that what she just said? "The dirtiness is for the maid"?
How cheeky is that!
Urgh! I wouldn't have my house like this, I'd have a cleaner.
-This is her mentality.
-She is messy. She's very messy.
"I'll mess it up but somebody will walk behind and clean up."
He's just thrown up, hasn't he?
No. He just chucked up.
-What are you like?
It's the only thing that makes me sick, that.
I want to pull. I want to go home. I don't want to go home.
How can you go out covered in sick?
I can't see a problem with that. What would you rather he'd be?
-Lying in the gutter unconscious?
-You don't do that out in public, do you?
-She's checking his tonsils out.
-It's quite uncomfortable to watch it.
It definitely is easier for me to see Oliver performing as he was
with the girls than it is for his mother.
Probably because I'm a male!
She sees us two doing it and she thinks, "I don't have to do it."
She's in a hotel knowing full well they have maids
and they're paid to clean, so she was just expecting them to go and do it.
Uh-uh! Who do you think you are? Clean your own crap up!
So far, dad Gerry is unimpressed
with Shannon's lack of responsibility.
Can I take my travel pills with alcohol?
You just have to read what it says on the box and check it's all right.
I haven't got the box with me!
Shannon is keen to go on a booze cruise,
even though she suffers from seasickness.
The thing is though, if I do feel sick, it's like four hours, isn't it?
So we can't even turn around and, like, get off.
The thought of throwing up on a boat doesn't deter her,
so they head off to the harbour.
As per usual, Shannon's putting her faithful friend Jayne
in charge of her budget for the day.
I should have taken some travel pills because I feel sick already.
Wooh! My stomach...
My stomach is turning like mad.
The party boat is in full swing, but not everyone is in the mood.
It's rocking like mad. Woah!
Where's the toilets?
I ain't travel sick and I took my tablets
so I don't see why... She should've took her tablets.
I've been sick quite a few times already.
I promised myself I was going to look after her.
I'm on this booze cruise on my own, sat here with no friends.
I just hope I haven't spoiled it for everyone else.
I know that I probably have,
but I can't help it if I get seasick.
The Portsmouth lads are feeling hungry,
and Ollie's first time abroad has inspired him
to give foreign food a go.
-I've had some continental food.
Being a virgin traveller himself,
dad Harry is hoping Ollie is making the most of his experiences.
I think it's important for people when they go abroad
to embrace a culture because, if you try what they're eating,
they'd appreciate it, rather than turning your nose up, walking away.
I like omelette, and I like Spain!
-It's not a reason to order Spanish omelette.
-Of course it is.
-Look at them!
It's my fucking holiday, I can do what I like!
It's the last night of the holiday
and the girls want to make it one to remember.
Oh yeah, I like it.
The Portsmouth boys are already hitting the bars.
After his success with the girls on his 19th,
Ollie is now more man than munchkin, and there's no stopping him.
-Everyone will agree - beautiful.
In the meantime, Shannon and the girls had to the strip.
Little do they know,
both sets of parents are about to gatecrash the party.
Jo and Gerry sneak a peak as the girls arrive first.
Here they are.
I think she's a bit drunk!
-She's choosing her tracks now, isn't she?
-They're moving now.
Yeah, they're going out now.
They're all out tonight, foursome, all having fun, yes.
And she's not absolutely falling over drunk.
As Ollie arrives with his new friends,
it's time for Harry and Lynn to take a sneak peek.
He's talking to some blonde girl. She looks a bit older than him.
She's far too old for him.
She's not his type, is she?
Yeah, it will be interesting if he walks out with her.
As Ollie hones his pulling skills,
he's completely unaware that his parents are hiding only yards away.
-This is Ellis.
I don't think she was interested!
-Far too old for him.
-Eden! Let's go!
The lads want to end the holiday at one of the island's
more expensive venues, at the cost of 50 euros each.
-Ollie, are you paying for her to get in?
-Yeah, I'm paying.
-No, it's not.
-She's beautiful. You know I'll pay for you.
-Listen, I'll go home.
You don't want to go home now, I know you don't.
But I will, it's fine.
I like her, but not 50 euros' worth!
Ollie's luck is well and truly in,
and he's decided to abandon his mates and head back to his hotel.
Where is he, where's Ollie?
-We don't know.
-Do we actually know where he is?
The probability, he's gone back.
KNOCKS ON DOOR
Ollie? Ollie? Ollie? Ollie?
-Yeah, I'm all right.
-We've got to come in.
-Because Joe is coming to sleep and we're having a sleepover.
While the boys hit the sack, the girls hit the booze.
# Five till six in the morning, six in the morning! #
I want to sit down.
There's no point going to sleep. I've got one more day left.
I'm just going to party hard.
BANGING AND CRASHING
They're just, like, walking into walls, and getting into bins.
They're not safe on these streets.
It's just your safety. I don't find it funny.
What if you cracked your head open?
I know. I'm just really drunk!
I suppose if you get a bang on the head
then you need to get it checked out, and I've hurt myself but I feel fine.
After Joe sacrificed his hotel room for Ollie last night,
mummy's munchkin is feeling rather smug.
I took her back here and we played Cluedo for an hour.
What do you think happened?!
I'm a 19-year-old lad now.
It's what most single 19-year-old lads would do on holiday, right?
I glanced across and just saw your knob cos you were naked!
You went apeshit at me!
Ollie's first time abroad away from mum and dad
has given him time to reflect on his future.
In the next five or 10 years or so, I want to start coaching sport,
football mainly, with, like, kids, disabled children.
I'd like to move away from Portsmouth,
maybe even another country. I don't want to live there my whole life.
It's the parents' last chance to catch up
on the events of the previous night.
-That's the girl from last night, isn't it?
He's got her a cab.
Is he getting in with her?
Yeah, course he is.
KNOCKS ON DOOR
Yeah, I'm all right.
-You haven't said anything.
Are you shocked?
No, I'm not shocked,
I just don't know whether I wanted to watch that so...
Everyone's doing that on holiday.
Yeah, I know, I'm just not comfortable watching it so...
I want to sit down.
She looks homeless!
BANGING AND CRASHING
Ridiculous! What an idiot.
I suppose if you get a bang on the head
then you need to get it checked out,
and I've hurt myself, but I feel fine.
-It's something the dog would do, isn't it?
Run into something and just bounce off it. Why?!
There's no reason for it.
Stuff that she's getting up to now, she knows she can't do at home.
She may have gone a step too far in some cases, like banging her head.
Seeing Oliver enjoying himself last night, and ending up with a girl,
he's doing what comes natural, and I was quite pleased for him.
I thought he'd go after the blonde girl.
I wouldn't have thought it was his type, quite false.
As the holiday draws to a close,
Shannon contemplates the events
of her first trip away from her mum and dad.
It's good that I've been drunk, like,
not remembered what I've done and I've managed to get home safe
and we've all looked after each other, so that's a good thing.
Big plan for my future would be to move to London on my own.
I think I'd give it another year.
Shannon's going out in the big world.
Jayne's still watching her bag, her money.
What's she going to be like when Jayne's not there?
When it's come to money,
I don't think I'd be able to handle bills and stuff.
I'd just be on the phone, ringing my mum, like, "What's this and that?"
I've learned from this week away, being without my mum and dad
that I'm not ready yet to move out.
I don't think I could... I've not got the responsibility.
The time has finally come
for Gerry and Jo to reveal themselves to Shannon.
-I might have a carbonara.
-I've not even had breakfast or dinner, me.
It's about time she knew we were here, don't you think?
It's about time we let the secret out.
Things will start whirling through her head,
"What have I done wrong? What have they seen?"
I just want you to open it for me.
It's the start of the girls' last blow-out night in Ibiza,
but Shannon is totally unaware that Mum and Dad are rapidly approaching.
It's disappointing we drank so much
and we can't actually remember our night,
but we know we've had a good night.
We've had a rocky week, but it's been good. I've even got loads of money
left and everything. Tomorrow, I'm going to go shopping.
-All right, Shannon?
What's with your concerned face?
DAD LAUGHS MIRTHLESSLY
I'm not liking this.
The alcohol took over me. I'm sorry.
Picking the drinks up after "Oh, my dad said I can't do it,
-"but I can't see anything in it."
-Did I say that?
You left your drink and went back to it.
I've told you before if you leave it, walk away. Get another one.
I've told you 100 times, haven't I?
That's the one thing that really got to me.
I am quite disappointed in myself that I'd actually pick it back up.
-After not knowing what was in it.
The girls become emotional and concerned
about dad Gerry's reaction.
-Can I have a hug now?
-No, not on TV. Dad this is horrible!
Hey, listen. Come here, come here.
Filming ceases as the family refuses to continue with the programme.
At the other end of town, Ollie and the boys are preparing
for their final night of partying in Ibiza
with pre-drinks in the hotel bar.
The girls are amazing.
They just walk round with their tits out.
What Ollie doesn't know is that Mum and Dad are coming to find him.
-I am quite nervous, yeah. Are you?
I'd say, with women, Ollie's the clear winner.
He's the only one who got a bang
-and she was quite good-looking, to be fair.
-She was very fit.
You're a liar.
"Oh, I haven't got my passport!" Liar!
I got my passport an hour before you left.
-We've been watching you all week.
-Have you been following us?
We were at the Slingshot, about 50 feet away from you.
-Did you actually?
We do have an issue with your drinking, your being sick.
I'm not like this normally, am I? None of us are like this normally.
-I've never seen you like that at home.
-It's cos we're here.
At the end of the day, I did think you looked good in a skirt.
They clearly think I've drunk too much, but I thought
I was doing the normal amount for someone my age on holiday.
To hear that my mum approved of the whole week,
that means quite a lot.
It shows she trusts me a bit more.
After surprising Ollie, Harry and Lynn finally get a chance to chat
with him alone and compare their first experiences of being abroad.
I want to travel more.
We're already talking about going, you know, across the Atlantic.
Do you wish you'd went travelling more when you were younger?
We had a young family.
We're not bemoaning that. I chose that route.
-You're here now.
-I'm here now.
I think we'd be quite proud of you
if you wanted to travel more
and see more places.
Slightly more confident about going abroad now.
I quite look forward to seeing you jet off,
or coming with us when we jet off.
The world's your oyster.
'She's just always been trying to wrap my in cotton wool all my life.'
I think my mum will see me more as an adult after this experience.
Next time, it's sun...
-I think it's bloody disgusting.
..on the Greek island of Zante.

BBC Three throws open the doors on the ultimate rite of passage for the average teenager - the first ever summer holiday abroad without their parents. But what these teenagers couldn't possibly have guessed is that whilst they enjoy their first taste of freedom, with all its temptations and excesses, they are being secretly watched... by their parents. It will be an eye-opening experience, but will it bring them closer together or drive them further apart?
This time it's highs, lows and very bad behaviour in the party capital of Ibiza. Good boy Ollie from Portsmouth is leaving his over-motherly mum, who calls him her 'munchkin'. This will be his first ever trip outside of England with the lads. Over in Preston, 19-year-old drama student Shannon wants to prove to her mum and dad that she can look after herself on her first girls' holiday without her parents.
Ollie's dad has also never been abroad and doesn't even own a passport. Little does Ollie know that his dad has not only got himself a passport, but is flying out with Ollie's mum to Ibiza after him. He's joined by Shannon's overprotective ex-bouncer dad and mum. Together they covertly watching their kids' every move.
It's the first night out in Ibiza, and Ollie's group finally leave the comfort of a British-themed pub to hit the strip. By 3am they are already carrying one of their group back. Meanwhile, Shannon is heading out for a big night out in a tiny outfit. Shannon's parents are not fans of her skimpy outfits at home, and as dad watches on in secret he becomes increasingly angry at his daughter's drunken behaviour.
Later in the week it's Ollie's birthday and the Portsmouth boys are hitting the alcohol hard. Despite throwing up after the first bar, Ollie is determined to continue and he ends up kissing several girls.
The next night, with his increased confidence, Ollie brings a blonde beauty back to his hotel room, but how will mum feel when she watches her munchkin acting like a man?
