Serena is upset and things quickly turn sour when Serena overhears her dad, Dave Chen-Williams (Dominic Power) offering Maxine some money that was intended for her and her athletics fund.
As the situation gets heated, Maxine suddenly blurts out Serena’s news - that she’s been offered a place on Team GB for the Commonwealth Games.
How will Dave react to the news that Serena has been secretly training and hasn’t told the family?
Later on, Maxine organises a night out with Serena and her half-sister, Lizzie Chen-Williams (Lily Best).
However some friendly competition and a few drinks soon leads to painful consequences for Serena!

However, later on and while tidying up, the pair of them make a surprising discovery of something left behind by their mum.
