Gemma and Chesney are edited out. When Tara shows Gemma and Chesney the photos from the shoot, they’re hurt to realise they used actors to play the their children's parents as clearly they weren’t good enough.
Aggie faces her fears. As Suki takes photos of Aggie for the Golden Heart Awards, Aggie confides in Roy that the reason she gave up nursing is that a patient died under her watch and although she wasn’t to blame, it made her doubt her own ability.
Meanwhile, when Geoff has a dig at Yasmeen’s clothes, and insists on taking her to town to buy a new wardrobe, Yameen is delighted. However when she suggests meeting Cathy in one of her new outfits Geoff is furious.
Elsewhere, Gary is taken in by the police. Back on the street Fiz and Gary are relieved to discover they both stuck to the story, that the only gun they’re aware of is the antique one in the shop. However Tyrone warns Fiz that by lying to the police, she could make matters worse.
