It's a new term and the housemates are returning to Hartnell Avenue a little bit older but not much wiser. Kingsley (Joe Thomas) has a new image and Josie (Kimberley Nixon) is turning over a new leaf. JP's (Jack Whitehall) great friend Giles has transferred from Exeter. Vod (Zawe Ashton) is skint and tries out new ways to pay her debts back and Howard (Greg McHugh) is moonlighting in the local abattoir. Paul Lamb, the invisible flatmate has moved out, so the group must find a replacement.
