Since then Liam has stepped in to do damage limitation and has been manipulating Bobby to stay quiet about what he saw by scaring the young lad.

With Liam’s words weighing heavily on his mind, and his mum’s infidelity, Bobby angrily lashes out at Mercedes.

Mercedes tries to patch things up with her boy, unaware that Liam has been putting the frighteners on him. However Bobby continues to clam up and doesn’t want her anywhere near him.

Later on and worried about her son, she confides in Nana McQueen (Diane Langton) who tells Mercedes that she should do whatever is best for Bobby and must put him first. What will Mercedes do next? And does she think that Bobby and Max would be better off without her around at all?

Elsewhere Diane Hutchinson (Alex Fletcher) plucks up the courage to tell her husband Tony (Nick Pickard) and daughter Sinead (Stephanie Davies) that her son Finn O’Connor has been in touch and wants to see her.

Finn is now a free man after doing time in prison

Finn (Keith Rice) who has just been released from prison after serving his sentence for rape, has been keen to build bridges with Diane who went to visit him behind bars.

Sinead begs Diane not to meet up with Finn again but Tony has got more pressing matters on his mind as he’s worrying about his own son, Harry (Parry Glasspool) who has done a vanishing act.

After the recent discovery of Louis Loveday’s body, Tony starts to panic that Harry may have met the same fate unaware that that’s exactly what has happened and that serial killer Breda McQueen (Moya Brady) murdered ‘Bad Dad’ Harry in cold blood.

An oblivious Tony tells Diane that he’s not giving up on his son which inspires Diane to do the same with her own flesh and blood, Finn. Despite her family’s wishes, she decides to go and meet her son but what does he want?

Plus Sylver McQueen (David Tag) has suggested to Grace Black (Tamara Wall) that he helps her with her physio. Grace is completely on board with the idea but is a little TOO enthusiastic.

Grace, who was badly injured in the car crash caused by Mercedes, seems totally smitten with Mercedes’ husband Sylver as he helps her with her exercises.
