Phil discovers his dodgy dealings may have put Louise in danger, Bernadette, Sonia and Whitney try to save Tiffany, and Mitch has a surprise encounter

Louise is in a huff when Keanu ignores her and her day gets even worse when a bloke spills coffee all over her in the café. In a bid to make Keanu jealous, however, Louise gets flirty with the mystery man.

But what is the man really up to? Keanu quickly realises that the guy hanging around Louise is Midge, one of the heavies in Spain that attacked him. Concerned for Louise, Keanu quickly rushes out to get Phil, who tells Louise to leave the café.

Phil confronts Midge and warns him to stay away from his daughter. A threatening Midge tells Phil that he wants payback for the money that Phil lost him. He makes it clear that Louise could be in danger if Phil doesn’t cough up.

A desperate Phil knows he’ll need to get the money for Danny and Midge fast. His only option is to get his money back from Alfie. In a bid to find out where Alfie’s gone, Phil talks to Tommy. Will Tommy tell him the truth? Later, Phil gives Keanu an important job, telling him to protect Louise at all costs…
