Scout is over the moon when Mia, a mid-twenties MS sufferer, offers her the position as a live-in carer, but Em's recklessness threatens to jeopardise everything, in the latest episode of the school drama.

Michael himself is trying to keep his distance from Linda and is troubled when Sian accepts Linda's help to input the grades. His instinct proves correct when Linda confesses to Sian about their tryst, but Sian's reaction to the news provokes unexpected consequences that could have serious implications for her marriage. And Michael's world is rocked even further by the sudden arrival of Wayne!

Scout is played by Katie McGlyn, Mia by Kaya Brady, Emily James by Shannon Flynn, Matt Wilding by Chris Geere, Michael Byrne by Alec Newman, Tariq Siddiqui by Naveed Choudhry, Sian Diamond by Jaye Jacobs and Linda Radleigh by Sarah Hadland.

Planet Dinosaur – New Giants Ep 5/6

Wednesday 12 October
8.30-9.00pm BBC ONE

The new giants – the heavyweights of the dinosaur world – are the focus of the fifth episode of this ground-breaking series. But how did the dinosaurs get so big?

The biggest known dinosaur roamed South America 95 million years ago. A colossal 35m long and weighing 75 tonnes, each Argentinosaurus reached its phenomenal size by growing up to 40kg a day. But their physical dominance, and the success and survival of the species, evolved over millions of years.

One way they increased their survival was to have lots of offspring: Planet Dinosaur reveals the Patagonian nest site that stretched for 15km and once contained tens of thousands of eggs. For killers like Skorpiovenator, it may once have provided a feast.

For years these giants were considered immune to attack from any predator – until the discovery of Mapusaurus, a new giant killer whose fate appeared to be inextricably linked to Argentinosaurus.
