When Cheryl wakes up with a hangover in the "class geek's" bed, she freaks out and thinks the worst, as the drama set in a Midlands health centre continues. She is then spotted leaving his room by the "cool" drama students who laugh at her and hurry off to gossip.


She then goes to the campus surgery to get her regular anaemia injection from Mike, and while there she kisses him. Mike tells Michelle, saying it wasn't his fault, but Michelle tells him he is unprofessional. She tries to make amends but Mike leaves. Ruth tells Michelle that Mike has gone for good so she follows him to the Mill, hoping to see him before he goes.


Later, Ronnie goes to the Mill to talk Vivien through the trial, and the grim reality sinks in for her that she will have to face her attackers. Heston, meanwhile, goes to see Lily, an old friend and colleague, and offers her a job and a stake in the partnership. Lily agrees and Heston smiles to himself, quietly saying: "I love you, Lily Hassan."


Cheryl is played by guest star Jennifer Higham, Mike by James Carlton, Michelle by Donnaleigh Bailey, Ruth by Selina Chilton, Ronnie by Sean Gleeson, Vivien by Anita Carey and Heston by Owen Brenman. Seeta Indrani joins the regular cast as Doctor Lily Hassan.

BBC TWO Tuesday 28 October 2008
British Style Genius – By Royal Appointment:
The Country Look Ep 4/4 
Tuesday 28 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO
Press pack


The essence of classic country clothing, embodied throughout modern history by the Royal Family, from Queen Victoria to King Edward VIII and our current Head of State, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is examined in By Royal Appointment, the final part of British Style Genius.


As sported by the Royal Family, "the country look" is a quintessential British style which continues to influence fashion designers around the globe.


Traditional "country" clothing is full of class connotations but it also transcends them to become a symbol of a certain kind of British spirit. Garments are practical, durable and perfectly designed to deal with the ever-changing British weather. From the waxed jacket, to tweed and floral, these British staples are constantly being redesigned for modern fashionistas. As Suzy Menkes, the doyenne of fashion journalists, says: "The love of floral is an entirely British thing."


In 2008, as an acknowledgement of her fashion influence, Dolce and Gabbana took the Queen's trademark tartans, tweeds and headscarves and restyled these traditional accessories for the current catwalk.


This episode features a host of "country look" advocates including: Suzy Menkes; designer Christopher Bailey; Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman; Luella Bartley; Alex James; and tweed-loving Eric Clapton.


Country fashion has moved a long way from its "sloaney" tag to play an unassuming, yet vital, role in defining British fashion.
