Tony is adamant he doesn’t want any of his evil father’s loot either and says it should all go to ‘expectant parents’, Verity and her fiancé, Sami Malik (Rishi Nair).

Tony still has no idea Verity has lied about being pregnant after covering for Tony’s own wife, Diane who is in fact the one expecting a baby!

The deception sprung up when Tony found a discarded positive pregnancy testing kit and assumed it was Verity’s.
