Waterloo Road

8:00pm Thursday 4 October on BBC ONE

Madi gets herself into trouble when she makes a pass at step-mum Sian’s new love interest; Grantly resorts to desperate measures when Maggie calls off their wedding; and Josh makes a momentous decision about his future.

At the school gates, Sian arrives to be met by Madi, full of questions about where she’s been overnight. Keen to keep her love life quiet, Sian steers the conversation away by noting Madi’s belongings dumped at the school gates – her mum has thrown her out.

Later, Madi is drawn to Ray, a good-looking businessman who’s leading Lorraine’s work experience classes. She sets her sights on Ray unaware that he’s dating Sian.

Upset by a phonecall from home, Madi turns to Ray for comfort but misreads his intentions and tries to kiss him. When Ray doesn’t reciprocate, Madi is humiliated.

Vengeful, Madi posts a rumour on a social networking site saying Ray kissed her. But her lies soon impact on her friends.

Elsewhere, Maggie calls off the wedding to Grantly saying they’re too busy to get hitched. But Scout thinks something is amiss after hearing Maggie making a secret phone call and, along with Pheonix, tells Grantly she thinks there’s another man.

Their suspicions are confirmed when Grantly confronts Trevor – Maggie’s estranged husband. Grantly discovers Maggie’s being blackmailed by Trevor, who she never divorced.

With their wedding day in jeopardy, Grantly hatches a plan to make Maggie his bride, with a little help from Scout and Pheonix.

Elsewhere, Josh faces up to his future – he needs to live his own life away from Waterloo Road, but worries how Tom will take it.

Madi is played by Georgia Henshall, Sian by Jaye Jacobs, Grantly by Philip Martin Brown, Maggie by Melanie Hill, Josh by William Rush, Ray by James Daffern, Lorraine by Daniela Denby Ashe, Scout by Katie McGlynn, Pheonix by Kaya Moore, Trevor by Bill Fellow and Tom by Jason Done.
