With Beth nursing a fractured arm, Sinead admits she’s not sure how much more she can take of Chesney’s crazy behaviour. Tyrone calls Daniel a bully, pointing out that Ches is trying to do his best for his grieving son while Daniel makes his life a misery. Awash with guilt, and reminded of his own childhood, Daniel tells Chesney he’s sorry and wants to bury the hatchet. In turmoil Chesney bares his soul to Sinead.

Seb begs Faye for another chance but she’s adamant that whilst he believes Phelan over Anna, their relationship is dead in the water.

Roy arranges a birthday meal for Carla at the bistro, secretly hoping being greeted by her whole family will persuade Carla to stay. Brian breaks the news to Roy that he’s moving out. Sophie’s intrigued when she comes across a little wire model of a house in a drawer at Luke’s flat. Luke explains Andy used to make them as a hobby.

First episode of evening.
