Geoff knows Yasmeen is all heart. Alya quizzes Geoff about the hotel but he is a bit evasive. Geoff then fakes a funny turn and clutches his chest. Yasmeen calls for Emergency Medical Technicians but when the paramedics can find nothing wrong with him, Geoff refuses to go in for tests. Alya and Ryan are suspicious, especially when Yasmeen announces that Geoff is in no fit state to fly to Spain so she’s cancelling their trip. Alya is soon convinced Geoff faked his heart condition to stop Yasmeen from going to Spain but how can she prove it?
David hits self-destruct. Gail is shocked to hear that David has been seeing Alina and gives him a piece of her mind. David storms out, wandering the streets drinking when suddenly two muggers grab him, drag him into an alleyway and pull a knife on him. Steven Gidwaney makes his television debut as the mugger.
Emma makes a big decision about Sebastian. After spending the night at a mate’s, Sebastian returns to the flat and assures Emma he has no interest in Alina and she’s the only girl for him. Sebastian corners Alina in the cafe and suggests it might be best if she moves out.
Meanwhile, when Gemma finds that Aled’s hearing aid has arrived, she reckons things are looking up. Bernie remains sceptical.
Elsewhere, Ken is furious to realise Charles is ripping him off. Norris claims that’s only the tip of the iceberg and he’s ripping off residents left, right and centre with his fines.
