Stella's graduation day arrives. But despite three years of hard graft, she's not in the mood to celebrate.

Further details

It's finally here! Stella's graduation day arrives. But despite three years of hard graft, she's not in the mood to celebrate. That's because the divide
between her and Michael has grown even bigger... and the arrival of an old friend isn't going to help much either.

Meanwhile, Aunty Brenda is borderline hysterical when she arranges to meet her real father, and love is in the air for Nadine, though it's not with someone anyone was expecting.

Later, friends and family gather at Stella's graduation party. But just as the fun begins, some news is sprung upon them which could change their lives forever and take away someone they dearly love.

Ruth Jones knows a thing or two about quitting while she's ahead. After the succinct greatness of Gavin & Stacey, she now ends Stella, Sky's only successful comedy origination, after a comparatively epic six series. There's plenty still to resolve in this final episode. It's Stella's graduation, but what will happen to Nadine and Jag, to Stella and Michael Jackson, or Brenda's claim to lordly parentage? There's more drama than you might think before we get to the end.
