The girls are back - but they're not very happy! Ellie's glorious romance with Russell is teetering on the rocks.

And Nadine is fed up with the other two lecturing her about the dangers of meeting someone on the Internet - she thinks her online boyfriend sounds wonderful!
Buckets of tears are wept and hundreds of tissues are sniffled into - can the girls survive these testing times?
