Ted has spent weeks teaching Bernadette to play chess but as the pair bond over their enjoyment of psychological board games, others will become suspicious.

The loudmouth and her oldest son Keanu confront Ted with the shocking allegations.

But when Bernadette, 15, is so keen to play chess that she tries to miss school, Ted makes it clear she should focus on her education.

However, being Karen Taylor's daughter, Bernadette ignores this and decides to play anyway - temporarily borrowing Ted's chessboard to take home with her.

More shock will come when Ted realises his chess board has gone.
