  • Notes

    • This is an extended episode, running at 70 minutes without commercials.

    • Last episode for Alison Newman as Hazel Bailey, Ben Price as Conrad Gates, Jamie Davis as Harley Lawson, Marcel McCalla as Noah Alexander, and Tom Swire as Seb Webb.

    • During ITV1s presentation of this episode, several scenes were cut from the episode mainly involving Noah and his girlfriend's father. Being so frustrated by the fact that his girlfriend is looking to push ahead and set a wedding date, Noah decides to visit a gay male sauna. While there he is in a steam room and suddenly a hand reaches out and is placed on his towel-covered leg. It is the hand of the "reformed" father of Noah's girlfriend. ITV simply cut the scenes at a very late stage to allow a few more minutes to their Celebrity Love Island live series. In transmissions in Sweden, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand the uncut version has been shown. The uncut version is also available on the Region 4 Series 4 DVD set. The other cut scene featured Tanya Turner (played by Zöe Lucker) at the airport with her dead husband's ashes. This scene was re-used in season 5's episode 4 when Lucker officially returns to the series.

    • A part of this episode's storyline is picked up in the spin-off Footballers' Wives: Extra Time.
