Janet gets a job on a cruise ship, but it will mean leaving Jonny and Corinthian behind? Meanwhile Louise learns the truth about her parents, and Donna goes into business.

Further details

Janet has been offered a job on a cruise liner as a singer. It's her dream job but it means leaving Jonny and the baby behind. That is until Jonny decides to come too, and become a pirate - his dream job.

But it turns out the job was to be a stripper and Janet and Jonny stay at home. Gaz finds out his dad is selling the garage and he'll be out of a job. But luckily Donna gets all the money from the sale of her mum's house and buys the garage for him.

Gaz's dad isn't the only Two Pints parent featured in this episode. Louise's mum is very ill in hospital. In visiting hours her mother reveals that Louise was in fact adopted.
