Series 1, Episode 1 - Santorini
Liam and Caroline's increased absence is having a detrimental effect on the kids. Teenager Chloe has got a piercing in her tongue and an attitude to match; son Mikey has been eating food from bins; and brother Steve has had a run-in with the school bully. With Liam and Caroline overstretched, Tommy fills the breach with his own idiosyncratic brand of parenting...
Meanwhile, Jim has met a woman at a car-boot sale. She seems perfect for him, but there's just one hitch: Caroline's sure she's a nun. Why is she interested in Jim, and can they warn him before it's too late?

To save up for a holiday in the Med, Liam and Caroline are working extra shifts. It's crazy hard, but when Caroline falters, Liam reminds her just how grim those North Wales caravan holidays can be.
Jim comes in dressed up all smart. He explains why: at a recent car boot sale he met a lady. Could it be that romance is back in his life?
This deleted scene introduces Kevin to the show. Liam and Tommy's other brother has been thrown out by his fiancée when she runs off with Tommy.
