Elsewhere, A worried Abi tells Kevin she’s heard whispers that Tommy Orpington has been lined up as a character witness for Corey. 

Meanwhile, Sabeen calls on Imran and suggests they ask the court to take account of Kelly and Corey’s ages during the trial as it could benefit them both. Sally assures Jack that Tommy wouldn’t support Corey if he knew the truth, while Abi’s liaison officer Alison talks to her about the trial next week. Toyah’s dismayed when Simon reveals that Corey’s identity has been leaked online on a Tommy Orpington fansite!

Ronnie gets all dressed up and invites Jenny out for a meal but, preoccupied by a blocked toilet in the pub, she’s non-committal, leaving him disappointed. Daisy thinks she’ll regret turning down Ronnie’s invitation and should give him a chance, leaving Jenny to wonder if she’s right. 

Also, James receives confirmation in the post that his case will be reinvestigated by the police.
