Further details

Janet is mugged and decides she wants to become a police community support officer to protect others from the same fate.

Wesley, meanwhile, comes back to Runcorn in an attempt to win back Donna's heart and asks Gaz for advice on what to do. Gaz, however, advises Wesley that he needs to be more like him.

Elsewhere, Donna is furious with Gaz after he tries to set her up with a tramp and also when she realises that he's given terrible advice to Wesley. However, she softens when she realises that he is genuinely concerned about her.

Wesley later tries to show Donna that he's serious about her and decides to move in with her.

Louise, on the other hand, is determined to find a father figure to help her look after baby Louise but, after failing with both Tim and Gaz, Tim makes her realise she can do it all by herself with the support of her friends.
