Series 11, Episode 8

Frank spots his son Lip and granddaughter Katie on the bus not far from the Chatsworth Estate. Curious, he stages a meet - surely they haven't been living so close all this time?

Further details

Lip has gone to some length to distance his daughter from the unruly world of Frank and the estate, but it becomes apparent that Grandma Mimi has been very much part of her life. Will Frank be able to connect with Katie and is Lip really the transformed hotshot he claims to be?

Saul decides to join Remona's Scout group, but when his rebellious behaviour gets out of hand it's up to Jamie to show him the right path.
