Maybe Lily missed the memo that she and Al are no more?!
On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Al complains to work colleagues, Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee) and Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) about Lily's behaviour.
After some advice from Jimmi, Al asks Lily to return her key to his home.
Lily agrees to return the key... except she doesn't!
Worried about Lily's strange behaviour, Al decides to change his locks just to be safe.
But when Lily sneaks over to Al's house and realises her key no longer works, she is NOT happy...
Meanwhile, Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) is trying to put on a brave face around foster teenagers, Tom Robson (Max True) and his sister, Ella (Lily-Mae Evans).
But when Tom disapproves of Karen's choice of breakfast, he throws his food to the floor leaving Karen worried his violent temper (opens in new tab) is about to resurface...
Could Karen be right about her theory that troubled Tom may have murdered his own mum?
Elsewhere, Emma Reid (Dido Miles) investigates when various medical students turn up with puncture marks on their arms.
Is it something to do with drugs?
After Emma encounters Mo Larkin (Kay Purcell) and Gillian Hall (Charlotte Weston) who both mention receiving a "vampire facial" from medical student, Regan Law (Melissa Parker), she confronts Regan.
It seems Regan has been offering the unique facials in exchange for funding her research into dementia.
But have Regan's secret experiments now gone too far?
