Charles Wykeham uses the imminent arrival of his Brazilian aunt Donna Lucia as an opportunity to invite two young ladies to his rooms for tea.  But when Donna Lucia’s visit is postponed and they’re without a chaperone, rather than cancel the tea-party, Charles and Jack persuade their fellow student Lord Fancourt to impersonate the Aunt.  Lord Fancourt relishes the opportunity and particularly enjoys being kissed by the girls and sharing their confidences.  So much so, he stubbornly refuses to abandon his role

But then the real Donna Lucia turns up …
