A teen tennis prodigy’s French Open success is shattered by a devastating tragedy. Five years later, her world is rocked once more when her former coach returns home having won the French with his new player.

Teen tennis prodigy Justine suffers a career-ending tragedy on the world stage at the French Open. Five years later, she seems to have healed, but her peace is shattered when her old coach Glenn returns home, having won the French Open with a new player. When Justine makes an explosive allegation against Glenn, the stately world of tennis is rocked by lies, deceit and a desperate bid for control.

Justine Pearce was a dynamic young sports prodigy who had a meteoric rise in the world of Grand Slam Tennis. Glenn Lapthorn was Justine’s maverick coach with whom she shared an intense rapport. Together, they reached the semi-finals of the French Open. However, tragedy struck on court, and Justine’s dream of sporting glory was cut brutally short, alongside her professional career.

Five years later, Justine is a physiotherapist at her old tennis academy, Longwood. It seems like she has finally healed, physically and psychologically, from her humiliating downfall on the global stage. But when Glenn wins the French Open with his new protégé Gianluca Barzaghi, he returns in glory to the UK with his wife and family to join the board of Longwood. Glenn’s prodigal return triggers a massive emotional upheaval in Justine, who is devastated that her former coach has accomplished their shared dream without her.

Thursday 1 August 8.30pm

In Glasgow, hiking enthusiast Karen wants to build a modern-day mountain hut in the heart of the city, while next door, her neighbour William has plans to build something eccentrically old-fashioned.

Inspired by hikes in the Scottish Highlands, shop owner and jewellery maker Karen is building her version of a mountain hut in central Glasgow.

After a five year wait to get started, the project finally leaps into action when Karen and her two neighbours agree to collaborate and lay out all of their foundations together using the same contractor. But building an architecturally ambitious house in close proximity to neighbours, comes with its own set of challenges.

Next door is retiree William, who in an architecturally progressive street is building something deliberately old-style – a home cloaked in textured grey render called roughcast. His initial plan is to get the professionals in to build the house - but his love of DIY gets the better of him, and bit by bit he takes on more and more of the work himself.

Justine’s explosive allegation causes rifts in her closest relationships, and she must fight to control the truth of her and Glenn’s past, enlisting the help of new flame, Mikki.

Justine’s closest circle is left reeling after being called in to the police station to discuss her allegations. Justine is devastated to learn that no one has backed her up and seeks comfort in the arms of Mikki. Meanwhile, news of Justine’s claims is taking its toll on Glenn who struggles through a difficult lunch with his aging father Charles and tries to keep news of the drama away from a restless Luca.

When Andi offers Justine a new way to prove the truth of her allegations, Justine prepares to present her story to Longwood, all whilst helping Renee to step up to the biggest opportunity of her career. As Longwood gathers to find out what really happened between Justine and Glenn, Steve begins to question his judgement.

Thursday 8 August 8.30pm

Tired of living on top of each other in a tiny house outside Glasgow, Amanda and Chris decide to build a home for themselves and their children. We also return to visit Joanna and Ben’s Wild West house on the same street.

Amanda and Chris and their three children live just outside Glasgow in a very cramped house, so when the opportunity emerges to self-build a generous family home close to the city centre, they jump at it.

But with little previous experience of self-build and a limited budget, they decide to forego the services of an architect and design the house themselves, an ambitious timber clad box with patterned brick.

We also return to Joanna and Ben who built an American ranch style house and have been adding to their unique vision – making it a standout in central Glasgow.
