Ackley Bridge

Series 3 - Episode 7



It’s no surprise that the school is buzzing with the rumour that Cory has slept with a teacher, although hilariously, the initial assumption is that it’s Mandy rather than Sian. Not that either of them finds it funny. “I’ve messed up,” admits Sian, eventually. Er, yes you have love and you’ve messed up Cory’s life, too.

Also struggling with malicious school gossip is Nas, although she courageously brazens it out, while Spud is on a mission to discover who her dad is. She’s always been told he’s a Greek Cypriot who lives locally, but she’s never met him. When you learn his identity, you’ll be as shocked as she is.


Mandy tries to find out who is responsible for a rumour spreading around the school that Cory is the father of her baby - only to discover a secret concerning Sian. Chloe outs Nas in the middle of a school fundraiser, while Rukhsana accompanies Spud as he sets off on a quest in search of his father.
