Misbah was seen packing her bags and heading off back in May, leaving her offspring to look after themselves. But while the cat’s away the mice will play!

Misbah is shocked to return home and walk straight into the aftermath of her son Imran (Ijaz Rana’s) party. However, she’s quickly distracted when she receives a mystery phonecall.

Elsewhere Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) is love-struck following her kiss with Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) at Imran’s party. Juliet leaves an awkward voicemail to arrange meeting for lunch and promptly pockets £50 of the drug money that she and Sid Sumner (Billy Price) made, to go and buy herself a new dress for the lunch date!

Meanwhile Leela and drug dealer Jordan Price (Connor Calland) are still sneaking around continuing their affair and Jordan asks Leela if she’d like to go on holiday with him. What will Leela say?

Later, Sid gives Jordan the drugs money he and Juliet made unaware that Juliet has pocketed some for herself. Sid pales when Juliet tells him what she’s done and is terrified how scary drug boss Victor Brothers (Benjamin O'Mahony) will react when he finds some of the loot is missing.
