Later on Mercedes asks Felix to stay and play charades with her, her son Bobby Costello (Jayden Fox) and the rest of the McQueen clan and says he should stick around and have Christmas dinner with them too. 

Mercedes and Felix have big smiles on their faces but Bobby is far from happy about his mum’s new love interest.

Elsewhere, Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) was completely floored when her on-off girlfriend, Juliet Nightingale (Niamh Blackshaw) blurted out the fact that she had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. 

Tonight Peri is struggling to believe it’s true and when confronted by Juliet she runs away, calling her a liar.

Later on Juliet, with the support of her brother, James Nightingale (Gregory Finnegan) and her ex Nadira Vali (Ashling O’Shea) , plans to tell her mum about her diagnosis at the Christmas table. 

However, it’s clear she’s struggling.

Later on Peri goes to find Juliet in the park and apologises for the way she reacted to her cancer  news.
