Ackley Bridge Ep2O_edited1

Jordan arrives at the Murgatroyd house and watches Jamie playing through the window. Candice catches him and looks alarmed so he runs off. In the staff room, Steve arrives late to the meeting, much to Mandy's dismay. Will unveils the sign for the college open day that reads 'Ackley Bridge Collage'. Chloe and Jordan hang their artwork up in the canteen but Emma wants her to help in the English department. Mandy wants everyone on their best behaviour because of the high frequency of governers and prospective pupils parents in the assembly hall. Alya asks for advice with her speech from Sadiq, saying that she got distracted. 


Candice arrives with Jamie to the canteen, announcing that she is to return to school next year. Jordan admits that he knows Jamie isn't his son. Candice lets slip that she slept with Cory once and Jordan freaks out. Missy and Nas take some prospective pupils into Miss Shariff's science lab and Missy alludes to the fact that she had a relationship with Nas. Jordan causes an outburst in the canteen in front of a group of parents. Cory pulls him to once side and tells him not to allow Candice to take advantage. Jordan tells him that he is in fact Jamie's dad. Alya begins her speech and goes off script... telling everyone about Mandy and Sadiq's affair. 


Chloe is annoyed that Emma is spending more time with Missy and Mr Qureshi. Mandy almost breaks down in her office and Emma asks for the following morning off to attend Missy and Hayley's hearing with social services. Mandy tells her no. Missy arrives home to find Simone trying to make a cake for Hayley's return, hoping that it'll show social services that she's a good mum. Chloe is at home making food for her mum, but Emma telephones to say she won't be able to make it. Jordan pulls up in a car outside of the house to surprise her - it's Steve's. They drive up to the hillside and he tells Chloe that Jamie isn't his son. He asks her to run away with him. 


Emma takes Missy and Simone for a drink so that they can get out the house. She reassures Simone that she isn't the worst mum in the world. Sadiq asks to talk to Alya and Riz but neither of them trust him anymore. Steve telephones Mandy from outside of their house hoping for a reunion, but she is far too concentrated on answering emails so he walks off. Emma arrives home to find Chloe missing and asks Samir for help. On the hillside, Chloe feels pressured into having sex with Jordan. Simone watches Missy as she sleeps and says sorry - leaving in the middle of the night. 


The next morning, Chloe and Jordan are awoken by a knock on the car window from a policeman. Missy wakes up to discover Simone gone. Emma recieves a call to say Chloe has been found. She telephones Mandy to say she'll have to attend Missy's hearing instead. Neither of the women can attend because Mandy has a meeting with the governers following yesterday's events. Samir has spent the night at Emma's house, and despite the pair of them kissing, she feels terrible given his engagement. Steve arrives at Mandy's house and tells her the police have found the car. He tells her that he loves her and she feels terrible. 


A worried Missy arrives at the court hearing alone. Mandy doesn't feel ready to face the governers so decides to head into town to support the Booth girls. Kaneez notices that Samir is wearing the same clothes as the day before.  Lila scorns Nas for Missy's joke the previous day and admits she should had never have got with her. At the court, Missy and Hayley are reunited and are shocked when Mandy walks in to support them. Emma is relieved to see Chloe at the police station - but the feeling isn't mutual. Chloe wonders whether her home is with her mum in Ackley Bridge, or with her dad in London. 


Missy and Hayley are concerned when Simone doesn't arrive. Mandy promises to try and buy her some time. Steve goes down to the police station to collect Jordan. Jordan admits Jamie isn't his baby and is actually Cory's. At the Murgatroyd house, Cory knocks on the door and Candice presents him with baby Jamie. Samir is concerned that Chloe knows about his relationship with her mother. Riz tells Sadiq that he should resign and take a punishment. 


In the court, Mandy voices her opinion about splitting Missy and Hayley up. Just as a decision is about to be made, Simone bursts in blaming the buses and the fact she had to go and buy new clothes. Sadiq sits in front of the governers panel but they're not listening to him. He turns his back on Mandy, saying that she should be the one they get rid of and not him. Back at the court, the decision is made that Hayley can return home to live with Simone.


Razia is over the moon to see Hayley again and Nas is overjoyed that the sisters are reunited. Mandy knows she has done good. Her meeting with the governers is after lunch - her future is up in arms but she looks confident that she'll be okay. On the sofa skip, Missy and Nasreen put the world to rights. 

Missy, Hayley and Nana Booth enjoy their final days together in Ackley Bridge. Actress Rita May plays Julie Booth.
