All 16 episodes from the fifth season of the hard-hitting ITV prison drama set in the women's wing of HMP Larkhall.
In Episode 1, the prisoners want revenge on Snowball (Nicole Faraday), who planted the bomb that caused the explosion at the end of the last series.
In Episode 2, Snowball retrieves her gun from its hiding place and starts to put her escape plan into action with the reluctant help of Karen (Claire King).
Episode 3 sees the arrival on G-Wing of Phyl (Stephanie Beacham) and Bev (Amanda Barrie), aka 'the Costa Cons'.
In Episode 4, Shell (Debra Stevenson) threatens to blow the whistle on Fenner (Jack Ellis) and his pimping scheme.
It's the last straw for Di (Tracey Wilkinson) in Episode 5, when hubby Neil (James Gaddas) starts bringing his boyfriends back to their marital home.
In Episode 6, Colin (Tristan Sturrock) unearths the stash Phyl and Bev have hidden behind their mirror - but his own little habit should keep him from shopping them.
Episode 7 sees Christopher Biggins (played by himself) being held hostage by Larkhall inmates during a celebrity visit.
In Episode 8, Julie S (Victoria Alcock) is forced to consult the unpleasant Dr Nicholson (Philip McGough) after discovering a lump on her breast, and Episode 9 sees her struggling to come to terms with her cancer treatment.
In Episode 10, Snowball is in solitary confinement, and feeling increasingly desperate...
In Episode 11, allegations made by Snowball in her suicide note are leaving a lot of people feeling vulnerable and exposed.
Episode 12 sees the return to G-Wing of old-timer Noreen Biggs (Maria Charles).
In Episode 13, Phyl and Bev take the phrase 'open prison' a bit too literally and head off to a swanky restaurant.
In Episode 14, a new inmate, lifer Kris Yates (Jennifer Ness), makes a big impression when she arrives on G-Wing.
Episode 15 sees Denny (Alicia Eyo) frustrated by a setback to the planned opening of her art exhibition.
Finally, Episode 16 sees Yvonne (Linda Henry) locked in an old cell in the underground prison after her and Kris's escape plan is foiled by Fenner.
