Episode 5
 
Karen and Adam’s double ‘date’ with their prospective new squeezes goes well but Adam can’t resist a few jibes about Dan being a vicar.  Socially conscious Dan challenges Adam and reminds Karen of whom she used to be. As Karen’s relationship blossoms, Adam struggles to shut out his growing feelings for Karen.
 
Jenny starts chemotherapy, supported by cancer buddy Charlie – he even encourages her to join the hospital choir. Out wig shopping with Karen, Jenny jumps at the chance to be the face of Karen’s new book. Back at home, Pete finds himself in a dilemma when Chloe, terrified her mum is going to die, asks him to formally adopt her. 
 
Homeless David takes refuge at the airport but a chance encounter with ex-wife, Robyn forces him to admit his plight. After being welcomed back by his friends, David shares his newfound perspective on life with Olivia when she cracks under the pressure of her exams.
 
Series overview
 
Award winning comedy drama COLD FEET returns for an eighth series; Adam (James Nesbitt) is back on the singles market, but for once in his life he’s not finding any takers – has he finally lost his mojo? 
 
Pete (John Thomson) on the other hand appears to have found his and, having recently renewed their wedding vows, some alfresco action is the icing on Pete and Jen's cake. However, mature student Jenny's (Fay Ripley) happiness is short lived when some unexpected news sends her into a tailspin.  
 
Fiercely independent Karen is more interested in work than relationships, especially when a mystery author’s manuscript lands on her desk. 
 
Meanwhile, David (Robert Bathurst) and Nikki (Siobhan Finneran) are enjoying a more frugal life when Nikki’s divorce settlement comes through tipping the balance. How far will David go to protect his pride?  
 
Packed full of highs and heart-breaking lows, COLD FEET follows a tight-knit group of friends as they navigate their way through mid-life, facing whatever life throws at them, together.
