With Ben still struggling to cope with his hearing loss, he looked more lost than ever in today's episode.

But while everyone else fusses around him, it seems Lexi understands what her dad is going through more than anyone else.

Not only has she been using sign language to communicate with her dad, but she has also been teaching him some all important phrases... like "I'm hungry"!

But when Ben failed too understand what an angry car lot customer was yelling at him today, Lexi stood up for her dad and tried to make the stranger realise that Ben couldn't hear.

However, her heroic act nearly ended in disaster when the man reversed his car into Lexi, not realising that she was standing behind the vehicle.

Lexi walked away from the accident with just bumps and scrapes, but poor Ben felt awful for not being able to protect his daughter because he couldn't hear the accident happening.

Earlier this week Lola discovered she is pregnant and broke the news to boyfriend Jay.

But while he was thrilled by the news, Lola admitted tonight that she wasn't ready to welcome another baby into the world... leaving Jay disappointed.

Will he manage to convince Lola to keep their baby?
