Holding The Baby is the fourth episode of the show's third series. This episode was broadcast for the first time on the 15th of October 2004.


Molly has taken on a babysitting job. However, when Molly is called away by the paranoid parents she leaves Basil and Stephen to cope with an increasingly flatulent baby boy, who goes through more nappies than either Basil or Stephen can handle. After a while, Stephen and Basil find out that baby JoJo is missing. So Basil now has to pose has him until Molly finds him.


  • Same as before, the listing was originally wrong. The wiki said this was episode 6 while CBBC says episode 4.
  • This episode uses the joke in Season 1 where Molly "Has a kick like a mule" When Basil states he and Stephen will need an ambulance when she finds out JoJo is missing.
  • It is also stated that Stephen really hates the show sometimes, this might be why Stephen left for Hollywood in Series 5, to get away from the show.
  • Both Stephen and Liam hate the show sometimes.
  • This is the first time Stephen breaks the fourth wall twice. Saying that he hates the show, and that the program makers need to be more responsible.
