There’s a lot to like about this upfront and topical drama – the cast, script and larger-than-life characters – but we are especially enjoying Paul Nicholls as PE teacher Steve. He’s a good bloke who wants to do the right thing but has flaws (and a nifty right hook), which makes him likeable, believable and fun to watch.

Tonight, Mandy feels guilt over last week’s misdemeanour, and the fiery friendship between Missy and Nas continues to blaze as Missy tries to help Nas with her complicated love life.
