More detail

The Carters finally get to meet Johnny's new boyfriend Gianluca as the family gathers for Linda's birthday party, and although the guest of honour feels awkward, she tries her best to be happy for her son. Dean criticises Shirley's attempts to be a responsible mother, and Billy vows to pay back everything when Tina discovers he has been stealing electricity - but Tosh isn't quite so understanding. Patrick puts on a brave face as he struggles to cope with what's been happening, and at the end of the night, Linda has an unexpected announcement for Mick.
