A couple of pints on the 26th

Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps Ep 1/6 Tuesday 26 April 10.30-11.00pm BBC THREE Gaz adjusts to life in a wheelchair. There are new faces in Runcorn as Susan Nickson's popular sitcom returns to BBC Three for a new series this spring. Georgia Henshaw (Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging, Skins) plays Cassie, a feisty young girl who has just been released from a juvenile detention centre, and Freddie Hogan (Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows) joins the cast as Billy. Wannabe footballer Billy works as a carer for Gaz, who has been left paralysed following his accident at the end of the last series. Gaz returns home from the hospital following his accident; he finds it tough to adjust to life in a wheelchair and becomes annoyed with his new carer, Billy, who is eternally cheery and overly helpful. Things are made worse when Donna shows him all the adjustments she's made around the flat, and when their first attempt at a quickie goes disastrously wrong it begins to dawn on them both just how much has changed. Over at the Archer, a makeover is attracting a new, younger crowd to the pub and landlord Tim is really happy with the new business coming in. However, Tim's good mood is short-lived when his younger sister Cassie turns up fresh out of a juvenile detention centre and immediately stirs things up with the regulars in the pub. Despite Tim's best efforts Cassie will not leave, particularly when she discovers that old school crush Billy hangs out in the Archer – but he doesn't want her in Runcorn, especially as she refuses to apologise for the awful thing she did...
