However Breda has got other things on her mind. Having been blackmailed by Mac Nightingale (David Easter), who has threatened to expose her as a serial killer, the worried mum is on a deadline to bump off her next victim: James!

Mac wants his son James (Gregory Finnegan) murdered and has told Breda she has to complete her killer mission before his trial gets underway in court.

Elsewhere, James asks Donna-Marie Quinn (Lucy-Jo Hudson) to be a witness in court against Mac. Will she agree?

Later on Breda breaks into the Cunningham's and finds Mac’s lap top however she’s stopped in her tracks when Donna-Marie and Mac arrive.

Meanwhile Mac discovers a knitting needle Breda left in his house and confronts her over what she was doing there. A panicked Breda is forced into a corner and tells Mac she is unable to kill James. How will Mac react?

Plus Lily McQueen (Lauren McQueen) decides she needs to move on and put the past behind her. She braces herself and asks Prince (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) for a divorce.

Later on Lily struggles with her emotions and clearly upset, she gets even more distressed when Romeo Quinn  (Owen Warner) won’t answer any of her calls. In a moment of desperation she starts rummaging through her pencil case and looks as if she’s going to start self-harming again. However Prince arrives just at the right moment.

Elsewhere Damon Kinsella (Jacob Roberts) asks Grace to look after Maxine (Nikki Sanderson) for the afternoon following her recent medical scare.

Grace (Tamara Wall) agrees but after spending time with Maxine she becomes convinced that she is pregnant and gives Damon her verdict. Is Grace’s hunch correct?
