Waterloo Road

8:00pm Thursday 17 January on BBC ONE

Imogen challenges Dynasty over her plans to get cosmetic surgery and quit school to become a pole dancer; Nikki’s antagonism towards Scout grows; and romance is in the air for Christine and Michael.

While Imogen receives devastating news that there’s nothing she can do to reduce her scar, schoolgirl Dynasty makes plans to go under the knife and get a boob job, supported all the way by her pushy mother, Carol.

At school, guilt-ridden Connor still can’t bear to look at Imogen but she’s convinced he’s repulsed by her scars. So when she overhears Dynasty bragging about getting a boob job, Imogen snaps at her shallowness and outs her plans to Michael and Audrey.

Later, Imogen offers a less-than-heartfelt apology whilst Dynasty practices her pole dancing. Later, Dynasty finds Imogen crying and, realising it’s because of Connor, she tells her she’s better off without him.

Imogen admits she thinks its wrong Dynasty’s mother, Carol, is encouraging her to give up school to become a pole dancer. She tries to make her see she’s worth more but their conversation is cut short when Carol arrives to whisk Dynasty off to the dancing auditions.

In the club, Dynasty challenges her mother but Carol dismisses Dynasty’s academic achievements telling her pole dancing is her true vocation. But, encouraged by Imogen’s support, Dynasty starts to doubt her mother’s grand plans.

Elsewhere, Chalky struggles to understand foster son Kevin; Michael asks Christine out on a date; and Scout and Nikki’s fractured relationship worsens when the finger of blame is pointed at Scout after Lorraine’s expensive sports car is stolen. But it looks as though Barry might have a hand in that incident.

Imogen is played by Kirstie Steele, Dynasty by Abby Mavers, Nikki by Heather Peace, Scout by Katie McGlynn, Christine by Laurie Brett, Michael by Alec Newman, Carol by Zoe Lucker, Connor by Shane O’Meara, Audrey by Georgie Glen, Chalky by Mark Benton, Kevin by Tommy Lawrence Knight, Lorraine by Daniela Denby-Ashe and Barry by Carl Au.
