Darren’s other half, Nancy Hayton (Jessica Fox)  prepares for her co-deputy head interview and leaves Darren in charge of cleaning the house  while she’s out.

However, a simple task of taking the bins out results in panic as Darren finds a pregnancy test.

Darren assumes that it belongs to teenager Ella Richardson (Erin Palmer) who is in a relationship with his and Nancy’s son, Charlie Dean (Charlie Behan). 

A showdown ensues leading to a fiery  argument with Nancy. 

Upset,  Darren turns to his friends for advice.

Darren’s best mate,  Luke Morgan (Gary Lucy) suggests that Darren buys a gift for Nancy to smooth things out.  Luke gives Darren the name of a jeweller in town but it could take more than some fancy jewels to clear the air.
