It's Jack's first day back on the Hebburn Advertiser and he has plans to transform it into a paper that makes a difference. Joe's doctor tells him he has to relax to help with his heart problems and Pauline makes it her mission to de-stress him. Luckily Sarah's hippy sister Marial is in town with essential oils, hands on healing and a penchant for big Geordie bears. Sadly for Joe it means he's banned from pork pies, cheese and forced to drink peppermint tea, even on Jack's stag night. Vicky and Denise have their own plans to celebrate Sarah's final night of freedom.
