Ever since the series introduced us to the Barry family, it’s surely been obvious to everyone that there’s something different about Kacey (Brogan Ellis). She’s the only girl in school who’d rather pop on a pair of shorts and run round the football pitch than slap on a load of make-up and wiggle round the dance floor. But while it comes as no surprise to us that she’s more than just a tomboy, her brother Barry is shocked to his core and has a predictable reaction. “You’re a freak! Are you a lezzer?” he screams when he finds out what she feels.

Meanwhile, Michael announces that rules are there for a reason – and then breaks another one.


Tom clashes with Michael over the headmaster's decision to ban Kacey from the inter-school football final because the rules don't allow girls to play. But seeing how upset his star player is, he puts her on the team anyway on the understanding that she pretends to be a boy - setting off a chain of events that forces Kacey to face up to her gender issues. Connor is puzzled when Imogen seems reluctant to wear his engagement ring, while Christine tells Michael she is too busy trying to be a good mum for any kind of relationship. But it seems somebody wants them together and has hatched a matchmaking plan behind the teachers' backs.
