Series 1, Episode 1 - Welcome To Hebburn, Pet
Jack Pearson is taking Sarah home to meet the family in Hebburn, but they think she is his new girlfriend, not his new wife that he just married in Vegas.
Mum Pauline goes overboard to make Sarah welcome, while sister Vicki winds them up about the thin walls in the house. Dad Joe has an important family announcement: he is retiring, his mother, Granny Dot, is moving in and he needs Jack's help.
The only way to cope is a visit to the local, Swayze's. Jack's old mates Ramsey and Gervaise are there, and Gervaise is hoping to win Vicki's heart with the power of song.
Jack's ex Denise also turns up to remind Sarah of the ghost of Geordie girlfriends past, and the party ends quite unexpectedly.
