Despite Terry's objections and her own inhibitions, she joins fellow school run mum Nita and hairdresser Dawn, girlfriend of Pauline's husband Brian's shop boy, as salespersons but lacks a venue - until Pauline, bored by her lonely existence, offers to host the party. Pauline is initially nervous but rises to the occasion when her prudish friend Bunny objects and the evening is a success.
Brian and Terry are less impressed however and Steph is shocked by Terry's subsequent actions. Episode 2 Terry is working away after Steph discovered his infidelity and, strapped for cash, she uses some of her sales money to pay the rent. Pauline overrules Brian by allowing Dawn, who is exhausted by skivvying for her lazy father and older brothers, to be their lodger but Dawn's spiteful father Len counters by banning her from seeing little brother Stanley. Needing the money Steph agrees to host a party for Lisa, the woman she caught Terry with, organized by Lisa's innocent boyfriend Barry, who takes Steph's 5-year-old son Dean out to the cinema - and loses him, though sympathetic policeman Danny helps Steph find him.
Nita's husband Kieren meanwhile reluctantly agrees to be the getaway driver in a robbery, which spells disaster for Brian. Episode 3 Steph goes on an overnight date with Johnny but Terry returns, vowing to make amends and, whilst both he and Steph's mother Joan know about Johnny, she agrees to a reconciliation with her husband. With Brian incapacitated after Kieren ran him over fleeing the robbery Pauline finds he is in debt to his suppliers and, to raise cash, encouraged by Dawn, hosts her first solo party which is a huge success. Returning home in triumph she finds that Dawn wants to move Stanley in after other family members have been arrested.
Meanwhile, Nita learns the truth about Kieren's part in the robbery.
Episode 4 Now the family's sole earner a confident Steph confides in fellow salesperson Hellie, spirited daughter of Bunny, her ambitions for the future. She secretly goes to meet Johnny who tells her that he is an adoptee who has come to Sheffield to find his birth mother. Pauline enjoys hosting Dawn's hen party but Russell, over-awed by the wedding arrangements, seeks to cry off the nuptials, being emboldened by a kindly Brian to save the situation.

Nita lies to the police to save Kieren whilst Pauline disappoints Johnny and Terry puts himself on the line for Steph. Episode 5 broadcast 1 August Three weeks have passed and Nita's son Richie has gone missing with his father's share of the stolen money. However Nita and Kieren join the others for Dawn and Russell's wedding. At the registry office Steph gives Terry some home truths having learned that Lisa is pregnant, most likely by him, but at the reception Brian is a hero, not only acting as father of the bride to give away a grateful Dawn but buying off her real father, the hateful Len, who arrives demanding to take back Stanley.
Pauline blanks Johnny whilst Nita encourages him that Steph is worth fighting for but unfortunately a real fight breaks out when Terry catches his wife kissing Johnny before storming off. Pauline lies to Johnny and then to Steph in an effort to keep the young man out of her life whilst Hellie has a confession to make to Dawn. Back home Nita is shocked when Kieren tells her that he so admired Brian's gesture at the wedding he feels he should give himself up.
