Further details

With the launch night of the newly redecorated Jockey looming, Jamie and Karen are feeling the pressure in their relationship. The honeymoon period is well and truly over - but can a lesbian encounter put the spice back into their marriage?

In the wake of Ian's departure, Micky looks to expand his horizons and enrols on a film course. Soon Micky discovers a hidden talent, and some new friends in the shape of his tutor Liz and her husband Ady. The couple soon introduce him to the world of swinging when they seduce him into bed.

An accident sends Carl to hospital where he takes up a job and is befriended by auxiliary nurse Maxine. Maxine is introduced to the rest of the Gallaghers, but Carl feels left out when Debbie and Maxine spark up a friendship.

Meanwhile Stan's attempts to bond with Chesney and Meena land them in trouble with the police and Norma makes a grim discovery while refurbishing the Jockey. And Mandy meets a new man in the form of Jamie's football team mate, Joe.
