Rocky Cant is doing his best to get Dotty Cotton the money she's after following her threats about telling Sonia Fowler that he's been lying about being her dad.
After his previous pitch to Peter Beale about getting vegan products on the Walford East menu failed to hit the mark, it seems like he's about to get a second chance.
Following Bailey Baker's petition outside Walford East about going meat free, Peter has had a change of heart and he talks to Rocky about his meat-free business.
Rocky tells Dotty that he's got Peter to sign over £3k to him. Although she's pleased he's got the cash, she warns him she'll need more than that if she's going to help her drug addict mum Sandy Gibson get help.
Just as Rocky and Dotty are talking about the money, Sonia Fowler walks in... What has she heard?

Later, Mick shares a moment with Frankie after she apologises for everything. Nancy tries to hide her bitterness as she watches them together
