The gang are back and we join them on a roller coaster ride of their not-so-perfect lives in a Manchester suburb. Lisa and husband Dan are settled and enjoying life in The Close, but when Lisa meets Kim things begin to change. As they quickly become new best friends, Dan feels a bit jealous and her best friend Shelley's nose is put out of joint too. There's a dark side to the lovely, bubbly Kim and things aren't quite what they seem, she has plans for Lisa (and Dan) but will she realise this before it's too late? As a series of events unfold, Shelley and Greg find themselves united in a race against time to save Lisa and Dan.
