Will the fishing trip mystery finally be resolved?

Chatting about the episode, she said: "I mean Ruth [Jones] got in touch on all forms of social media and texting and phoning and everything, and I’m terrible at keeping in touch with people. So I didn’t get back in touch. And then finally I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, this might be something serious. It’s either very, very good or very, very bad. So I phoned and she said, ‘How do you fancy doing a special?’ And I think she just told Matt in another phone call that, ‘I’ve just told Jo and she’s just gone hysterical on the phone!’ So I was screaming quite a lot!”
