Moving On, Series 2 Episode 9 of 10

Duration: 44 minutes

Dave Farrow is the life and soul of any party. Forever in the shadow of big brother Steven, star midfielder for the reds, Dave only gets noticed for the wrong reasons, and seems to be spiralling out of control. Dave is adamant there is no problem; he just likes a beer with the lads.

A&E nurse Ruth sees something in him, but whether Dave will be able to put aside his demons for long enough to give their relationship a chance is another matter. Will Steven and Ruth be able to help Dave before he presses the self-destruct button - or will he take them down with him?
