Series 1, Episode 8 - Keeping It Real

Craig's DJing hasn't been going well, leaving him stressed about mounting bills.

Further details

Craig's sleepless and stressed. He's been playing online games late into the night, partly as a way of hiding from the bits of his life that aren't going well - namely the DJing. He's telling Lauren and Declan that it's going great, but it's a front. Declan's taken in by it, and thinking Craig is doing better than him, enlists Yasmin to help him make a video for his new track.

Gradually, Lauren realises Craig's ignoring the overdue bills, borrowing money from Mike and generally hiding the truth about what's really going on. He's also coveting a piece of hi-end DJ kit that's way out of his price range.

Lauren's training for a Tough Mudder run with Yasmin - in aid of a mental health charity. Realising she can be of more use closer to home, she pulls out of the race and goes looking for Craig. She finds him in the music shop - about to steal the DJ kit.
