Full synopsis

4 O'Clock Club. Image shows from L to R: Ryan (Oscar Lloyd), Ash (Tom Rolinson), Josh Carter (Khalil Madovi). Copyright: BBC.

This year at Elmsbury High there's a ban on celebrating Christmas, but the kids are still determined to deck the halls with masses of festive cheer - all they need is a top-secret plan to sneak some Christmas spirit into school.

But Josh decides he can't help with their covert operation, because he has to stay in his mum's good books to make sure he gets the mega mixing desk she's promised him for Christmas. But staying out of trouble is definitely easier said than done...

Agnes also has her own reasons for not wanting to celebrate this year and when Josh finds out why, he wants to help. But is it right to share other people's secrets, even if you think it will make them happy in the long run?

Meanwhile, Nathan has a very important question to ask Mel. Will he ever find the right moment? And what will her answer be?
