After telling Mitch and Phil what has happened, Phil realises that Kim is going to be a problem and surreptitiously orders Denise to put a stop to this crusade. But it seems that Kim will refuse to listen, despite Phil’s warning to her on Thursday that the consequences will be serious if she keeps digging for answers.
Chelsea – pregnant with Gray’s baby?
It’s soap law that nobody can go near a pregnancy test without somebody witnessing their actions. And sure enough, as soon as Chelsea buys one, a shocked Whitney notices it lying in her bag.
Chelsea Fox (ZARAAH ABRAHAMS), Whitney Dean (SHONA MCGARTY) (BBC)
The next day, Gray comments to Whit that he regrets dating Chelsea. But aware of what she saw the previous day, Whitney can’t help but feel conflicted. In the end, she reaches out to Chelsea, who assumes that Whit just wants her blessing to date Gray.
But as soon as they come face to face, Whitney asks her question: is Chelsea pregnant?
Tommy has daddy issues
Tommy is being distant with his mum Kat, and she can’t understand why he’s refusing to open up. Thinking that she can get to the bottom of what’s going on, Jean encourages the youngster to talk and Tommy eventually reveals that he wants to know where Michael is buried.
Tommy Moon (SONNY KENDALL) (BBC)
But when Tommy then reveals more about why he’s been keeping silent since the day of the fire, Kat realises that it’s Janine who’s to blame and she storms off in search of her. Fans can expect the situation between the two women to then turn very sour indeed.
Harvey’s actions shock Ash
It’s not a good week for Ash who, after getting drunk on a night out, ends up losing her work pass and then throwing up all over Harvey’s cab.
Later in the week, there’s trouble at work when a patient refuses to be treated by her because she’s not white. And, to make matters worse, she’s being reported for failing to inform the hospital that her badge has gone missing.
Ash Panesar (GURLAINE KAUR GARCHA) (BBC)
Tired out at the end of her shift, she then books a cab, but the driver just happens to be Harvey, who admonishes her for ruining his taxi the last time she was in it and then makes a comment that leaves Ash slack-jawed with shock. Just what has Harvey said?
Janine tries to impress Scarlett
Scarlett has opted to do her school project on Helen Keller, but Janine is just offended that she herself is not her daughter’s hero. In an attempt to get into her good books, Janine then spins a tale but Scarlett is unimpressed.
Janine Butcher (CHARLIE BROOKS) (BBC)
Determined to prove himself, Janine ultimately enlists Frankie’s help and ends up giving a presentation to the class. But Scarlett’s feelings of pride will be severely dented when Kat later sparks a showdown with Janine.
