When Lauren talks to Steven about the wedding, Abi and Max enjoy making Steven feel on edge. Abi calls Cora and tells her that Lauren is getting married. Meanwhile, Lauren deletes Josh’s number when he tries to contact her.

Also, Keanu goes on a job hunt but has no luck. Mr Pryce starts looking at flats in the area.
