Elsewhere there’s more drama involving Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), Gray Atkins (Toby Alexander Smith) and Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty).

Plus things are tense between Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton) and Martin Fowler (James Bye). Ruby’s annoyed when her other half seems more interested in computer games than her and so she tries to seduce him. However her cosy night-in plans are scuppered when Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) suddenly interrupts with dinner.

Kush later tells Ruby he’s not going to let her manipulate him like Martin but Ruby uses her fake pregnancy to make Kush feel guilty and quickly regains the upper hand.

Plus, Vinny Panesar (Shiv Jalota) gives Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), who is desperate to earn some cash, a drugs package to shift. Billy assures Vinny he knows what he’s doing. Is Billy about to be sucked into the world of drug dealing or will his conscience get the better of him?
