Liam is wounded after Ross tells him he doesn't want him to be best man at his wedding. Fortunately, he soon meets some charming - if suspiciously well-bred - new friends at work.

Further details

Liam's best friend, Ross, tells him he doesn't want him to be best man at his wedding. Wounded, Liam stages a disastrous 'intervention' for his mates which leaves him ostracised from the group. Fortunately, he soon meets some new, charming - if suspiciously well-bred - friends at work.

Leeds, early noughties: Liam has still not replaced Craggy's hula hoe and tensions boil over, causing a rift between Liam and the lads. Meanwhile, at sixth form Liam is courting a more cultured set of friends - the indie lot. Though he soon questions whether they're as cool as they first appeared.
