Episode Summary

Wednesday 28th January 2009
Anita's anxious when Russ pairs her up with Gaz in class unaware that he'd mugged her yesterday. Gaz acts the picture of innocence but quietly continues with his racist attacks towards Anita. Russ is oblivious to what's going on but he's in trouble with the head once again when Gov passes and sees his daughter's upset. Russ collars Gaz and tries to understand why's he's constantly getting himself in trouble but he's shocked when Gaz tells him his dad's ill and he's the sole carer. Determined to turn Gaz's life around, Russ insists he's going to do what he can to help him. But as Russ persuades Gov to give Gaz a second chance and not exclude him from school, Gaz is torching Relish. Michaela's on cloud nine after Zak told her he loved her but she's a little miffed that he didn't tell her it's his birthday and everyone's got him a present, except her. When she spots a bag in the village with a Liverpool shirt inside she can't believe her luck, until a girl in a wheelchair thanks her for picking it up and tries to claim it back. Michaela's not willing to hand it over so easily and gets more than she bargained for when the girl grabs the bag back and throws a punch, sending Michaela sprawling to the floor. Zak's shocked when his younger sister, Hayley, turns up in Hollyoaks and desperately tries to keep her hidden from his friends. But it's too late when Michaela and Hayley come face to face and Michaela realises the girl she had a run in with earlier is actually Zak's sister. Zak's torn between defending his sister and his girlfriend as the two girls have a go at one another but Hayley's hurt when she realises Zak's denied ever having a sister and Zak's got some work to do to put things right between them. Leila wants Justin to get on with her brother and organises a lunch date for him to meet Ash properly. She decides to make it a foursome and asks Ash to invite Hannah, and he's only too pleased to oblige, even though he'd rather have Hannah to himself. Justin's not happy about having lunch with Ash but reluctantly agrees to keep Leila happy. But he hadn't realised Hannah would be joining them and hates Ash for making him look stupid as he splashes his cash and acts like the perfect gentleman. The atmosphere's tense during dinner as the topic of conversation turns to Gaz - the school bully. Reminded of how he used to be, Justin thinks Gaz should be given a chance but Ash doesn't agree and continues to put Justin down. As their argument escalates Justin refuses to sit and listen anymore and exits in a huff, leaving a worried Leila behind. Leila and Elliot volunteer to take over Kris' radio broadcast. Kris is suffering from man flu and feeling sorry for himself - if he doesn't feel better soon he's going to have to cancel his show. Leila and Elliot offer to stand in for him but although he's a little wary at first, the show must go on, and he agrees. But Kris is horrified when he listens in and rushes down to the media lab to get them off the air.moreless
