2651: The new students arrive
Aired Monday, Sep 21 2009 at 18:30 BST on Channel 4

The new freshers arrive in halls. Charlotte can't believe that her friend Dave has manage to wangle himself a place in her halls. Dave, meanwhile, starts his university life as he means to go on - with two cases of beer and a trip to the union to party!

Josh arrives at halls with his mum in tow but he's desperate to get rid of her as she starts embarrassing him in front of his mates. Hayley's not happy to discover that Josh has moved in and the atmosphere's slightly uneasy after everything that's happened between them.

Meanwhile, new student India doesn't get off to a good start. She's been drenched in beer on her way past the union and inadvertently exposes herself to the whole bar. The lads like what they see, though, when she finally arrives at halls.

As they all get to know each other, India's put in the spotlight but there's an uneasy silence when she manages to offend everyone. Isolated from the group after Hayley snaps at her, India finds comfort in Archie, while the rest of the freshers challenge each other to dares. Charlotte wears her pyjamas in public, Hayley steals Myra's underwear off the washing line, Dave pulls a moonie at the bus stop and a reluctant Josh - who knows his dad will kill him if he finds out - steals the moped from Mobs.

Charlotte and Hayley try to get India away from Archie, knowing full well what he's like, but India's having none of it after the way they've treated her and happily heads off with him. India's heartbroken, though, when she realises that she was just another notch on Archie's bedpost.

Meanwhile, Lauren's upset when Frankie has a go at her as she's convinced that the youngster knows where Newt is. She's shocked, though, when Frankie reveals that Gaz is still alive.

Upset after her confrontation with Frankie, Lauren tells Calvin that Newt's missing and explains that they all had an argument before he ran off. Calvin insists on speaking to Frankie but is slightly alarmed when Cheryl takes over and marches Lauren round to the house to fight her corner.

After saying her piece, Cheryl finds herself comforting Frankie as she breaks down in her arms. At that point, everyone decides that it's time they all pulled together. Lauren goes to see Gaz in hospital and is relieved when he reveals that he can't remember anything about what happened…

Elsewhere, Gilly enters a radio competition and is thrilled when he wins an adventure holiday of a lifetime. When Gilly finds out that it's Fernando's birthday and that he hasn't told Steph for fear of making her feel bad, Gilly reluctantly offers to take him for a pint.
