Katie Griffiths plays Chlo, the mother of Izzi and Tommy. Angela Griffin is the head teacher, while Strictly star Kym plays Nicky, a troubled school kitchen employee and mother of two teenagers.

The secondary school-set show first aired in 2006 and won legions of fans by tackling numerous tough issues over its 200-episode run.  

It launched the careers of The Capture star Holliday Grainger, 33, and Jenna Coleman, who went on to win awards for her role as companion Clara Oswald in Doctor Who and as Queen Victoria in Victoria.

The series – of which all ten series were released on BBC iPlayer prior to lockdown – tackled issues such as teenage pregnancy, alcohol, and drug addiction, and cancer.
