Ackley Bridge follows the staff and students at an academy school in a fictional Yorkshire mill. The lives and cultures of a largely divided white and Asian community meet and headmistress Mandy (Jo Joyner - Eastenders) has to deal with fall-outs and problem pupils. In tonight’s episode, Mandy’s professional and personal lives collide when Alya outs her and Sadiq’s affair at the school’s first open day. Steve comes to the rescue, but his help may not be enough. Meanwhile, Candice discloses the true identity of Jamie’s father, leading Jordan to spiral out of control. Fans of the show will be happy to hear that a second season was recently confirmed.
