Thrilled to have her home safe, Kevin is full of questions about where she's been. Abi apologises for skipping town and leaving him worried, promising that the £2000 she took from their joint account was for food and nothing else.

But while she might not have spent the cash on drugs, what did she spend it on? Is she being entirely truthful to Kevin?
