It's a sad day for the Taylors and little Bailey as the day of Dinah’s funeral arrives. When the service gets underway Bailey takes everyone by surprise by asking to say some words. But it all gets too much for the brave little girl, who finds she can't carry on. The family quickly step in and support her and they get through the rest of the touching service.

Ben is frustrated when Jay won’t get involved in his latest scam and even Lola wants nothing to do with it. When Lola bumps into Jay in The Vic she warns him that Ben is up to something. Ben sneaks into the funeral parlour and takes some pictures of paperwork. What is he plotting? An oblivious Jay tries to smooth things over with a scheming Ben.
