Further details

Janet begins her job as a police community support officer and is keen to earn Gaz's respect by making her first arrest. This proves more difficult than she imagined and she ends up landing herself in deep water.

Meanwhile, Louise is worried that Janet is a better mother than her, so she dresses like Janet and tries to improve baby Louise's IQ by quizzing her on mathematics.

Donna and Gaz both find it distressing when their divorce papers come through and decide they are not ready to have a happy divorce just yet.

Wesley tries to fit in by learning what he sees as the Runcornian way of life - pasties, shimmying, borrowing each other's clothes. When Donna realises the effort he is making, she softens and decides to divorce Gaz immediately.
