Callum Highway has a message for Jack Branning

Phil Mitchell meets up with lawyer Ritchie Scott and tells her that he wants to go for full custody of his son Raymond Dawkins. Ritchie can’t see that the courts would take too kindly to Phil’s rather extensive criminal record and suggestions it would be an almost impossible task.

Meanwhile, DI Thompson wants to protect his off the record investigation into Phil and tells Callum Highway he needs Jack Branning to keep his nose out. Callum tells a disgruntled Jack to steer clear. What will Jack say?

Later, Sharon Watts gets her late son Dennis’ belongings back from the boat disaster. Unable to cope she leaves the Queen Vic bar empty and Bobby steps in to help out.

Also, Habiba Ahmed gives sister Iqra Ahmed an ultimatum over her girlfriend Ash Panesar. Meanwhile, Lola Pearce feels guilty about boyfriend Jay Mitchell when Honey Mitchell says he’s been singing her praises.
