Sally apologises to Tim for giving Alya the money without consulting him but assures him they can still afford a wedding. A spiteful Geoff tells Sally that Tim will always choose him over her as blood is thicker than water.
Bernie interferes again. Gemma tells Cathy about her video call with Vanessa and what a tough time she’s having. Ignoring everyone’s warning about treading carefully, Gemma arranges to meet Vanessa but Bernie has other ideas.
Abi has a change of heart. Abi tells Sebastian that she now realises she has to say goodbye to the twins before they leave and begs him to speak to the Social Worker on her behalf.
Mary calls in the factory and shows Sean the fleecy blanket she ordered online, covered in images of Ben Shephard. She explains that Ben is the love of her life but she’s willing to share him. Sean is uncharacteristically speechless.
