Over the years there have been many reasons why pupils have left Waterloo Road. But this is a new one. Phoenix and Harley Taylor have won the lottery. And not just a tenner. They’ve pocketed £200,000 and are merrily blowing it on trainers and designer T-shirts when their dad (John Thomson) turns up to see them. You don’t need a psychology GCSE to realise it’s because he’s heard about their windfall.

The Barry family are keeping an unusually low profile despite mum Carol (Zöe Lucker) acting like a female Fagin, but Michael Byrne and Christine Mulgrew are behaving like daft teenagers – that’s a relationship none of us saw coming.


Phoenix and Harley win the lottery and all they want to do is spend, but their good fortune is overshadowed by the return of their father Nelson, who reveals his business is in financial trouble. Nikki suspects Scout has stolen her car and handbag and sets about punishing her, a guilt-ridden Connor can't bear to look Imogen in the eye, while Michael finds a friend in Christine when he receives news about his impending court case.
