What happened on Last Tango In Halifax series 4?

The last series was just two Christmas special episodes which was mainly about Alan and Celia’s respective daughters Caroline and Gillian.

Following Kate’s tragic death in series three, season four saw Caroline discover that the private school she was working at as a headteacher didn’t want her back after her bereavement leave.

Caroline accepted the school’s decision and landed a job in a troubled state school, causing the family to move to a remote Huddersfield farm house – which Celia was NOT happy about.

She also had an affair with wine dealer Olga.

Realising that she needed to confess to her crimes to new husband – and Eddie’s brother – Robbie that she had killed him.

Upon hearing the news, Robbie didn’t turn Gillian into the police.

However, he ended up leaving her and her son Raff, selling up his house and permanently moving to Canada.
