In episode five, entitled What Would Gus Want?, The Dumping Ground is divided when a same-sex couple show an interest in fostering Gus. As Johnny and Elektra come to blows about whether gay couples should be allowed to adopt, Gus is in turmoil about leaving the Dumping Ground and father figure Mike behind.

Brand new CBBC drama series The Dumping Ground is a fast-paced mix of social drama and comedy, taking the audience back into the heart of the fictional care home previously featured in the hugely popular Tracy Beaker Returns.

Now that Tracy has left, some brand new faces enter the Dumping Ground and stir things up as one by one they meet the show’s familiar, well-loved characters. The fresh ensemble-style show will see surprising new friendships formed, as characters are forced to lean on each other in challenging times.
