Phil has a word with the van driver and then warns Michael to get the van shifted, Michael tries to call the delivery driver but when he gets no answer, he decides to move the crates into the gym himself, but when he climbs in to the back of the van to reach the crates the door slams shut behind him and the van starts driving away with Michael trapped in the back. Michael shouts for help but his voice is drowned out by the radio and he ends up smashing his phone in a temper. When the van stops, Michael shouts for help but he is in the middle of nowhere and after smashing up his phone he has no way of contacting anyone. Who will rescue him? and will he get to his big opening in time??
