Holby City

Tuesday 12 October
8.00-9.00pm BBC ONE

The relationship between Faye and Linden breaks down as Linden discovers a number of lies Faye has told in her desperation not to lose him, as the medical drama continues.

Despite his attempts to leave her, Linden can't help but try to save her when she is threatened by a drug addict – but his act of chivalry ends up costing him dearly.

Michael is called into work on his day off to explain some figures he's lied about in his plans for Holbycare. Things go from bad to worse when a woman he's slept with asks him to operate on her varicose vein. When he realises that Ric is behind people scrutinising his proposal, he punches him and swiftly loses not only his pitch for Holbycare but also his job as Director of Surgery.

Frieda is in a good mood after Oliver asks her out for a drink to say thank you for bailing him out recently. She even considers applying for an F1 job when Penny pushes her. However, when Penny realises the reason behind Frieda's cheerfulness, she asks Oliver what he's playing at. Oliver doesn't want to lead Frieda on and so cancels the drink, causing Frieda to throw her application form in the bin.

Faye Byrne is played by Patsy Kensit, Linden Cullen by Duncan Pow, Michael Spence by Hari Dhillon, Ric Griffin by Hugh Quarshie, Frieda Petrenko by Olga Fedori, Oliver Valentine by James Anderson and Penny Valentine by Emma Catherwood.

Lip Service Ep 1/6

High Definition programme New series
Tuesday 12 October
10.30-11.30pm BBC THREE
The return of Frankie (Ruta Gedmintas, left) throws Cat (Laura Fraser) into a spin
The return of Frankie (Ruta Gedmintas, left) throws Cat (Laura Fraser) into a spin

A tale of sex, lies and true love in modern Scotland, Lip Service is a seductive new relationship drama starring Laura Fraser, Ruta Gedmintas and Fiona Button following the lives of a group of 20-something lesbians.

When spirited photographer Frankie went to America two years ago she ran away from many things: her relationship with Cat; her family; herself. Now she's back home in Glasgow for the funeral of her beloved aunt and her sudden return causes a stir among her friends.

For former girlfriend Cat, Frankie's reappearance throws her so much that she almost jeopardises her blind date with sexy policewoman Sam. Cat's brother, Ed, is also anxious as Frankie is the only other person who knows about his secret love for best friend – and lesbian – Tess. Only Jay seems happy as he's reunited with his drinking buddy and former pulling-partner-in-crime, Frankie. But as he's on the verge of settling down with new love Becky, Jay has to fight the urge – and Frankie's bad influence – to fall back into his bad-boy ways.

Meanwhile, unlucky-in-love aspiring actress Tess has a humiliating run-in with her ex-girlfriend, but things start to look up for her when she finds herself being hit on by gorgeous, and apparently straight, daytime TV presenter Lou Foster.

Initially hostile towards her former lover, Cat has a change of heart after learning Frankie is back in town for her aunt's funeral. Overwhelmed by an urge to comfort her, Cat tracks Frankie down to a funeral parlour and, for the first time since their split, the two connect. But painful memories quickly come to the surface as Cat recalls how badly Frankie treated her.

Later, when Cat returns to make amends, she witnesses first-hand Frankie's apparent inability to change and vows never to let her get close again.

Produced by Kudos Film And Television (Ashes To Ashes, Spooks, Life On Mars) through BBC Scotland, sexy six-part series Lip Service was created by Harriet Braun (Mistresses, Attachments).

Frankie is played by Ruta Gedmintas, Cat by Laura Fraser, Sam by Heather Peace, Ed by James Anthony Pearson, Tess by Fiona Button, Jay by Emun Elliott, Becky by Cush Jumbo and Lou Foster by Roxanne McKee.

Lip Service is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.
