Ellie Nightingale wakes up the morning after the night before - and panics when she can't remember a thing about it!

It’s Fresher’s Week in the village and Holly’s charmed when she first meets Nick Savage and introduces him to the rest of the teens. Ellie decides a night out at The Loft’s ‘traffic light party’ with Lisa will help her get over Freddie – but when Freddie turns up to help behind the bar, Ellie’s floored.

Freddie gets an attack of the green-eyed monster when he sees Ellie dancing with another guy. As he grabs her wrist and tells her to go home, she slaps him, but Nick breaks up the fight. Ellie gives Nick a thank you kiss – and they’re still kissing when the lights come on at The Loft.

As Lisa directs everyone to the after party at the Love Boat, Ellie takes Nick back to the pub instead and leads him to her room. But Ellie then starts to feel really drunk and lies back on the bed, as Nick continues to kiss her…

Next morning, Ellie wakes up with Nick by her side and, when she sees her knickers on the floor, she panics, realising they had sex. Ellie’s desperate to get Nick out of her room and is worried she can’t remember giving consent. But it seems Nick has had the night of his life!
