Ali's party exceeds everyone's expectations - especially his parents', Cain comes to Debbie's rescue when her party plans lead her into danger and Danny's altruistic deed infuriates Nicola.


Emily feels guilty for taking out her frustration on Debbie the previous evening but realises that she’ll never be able to compete with Charity for Debbie's affection. To make matters worse, Debbie has got wind there is going to be a party at the Marsden's and is desperate to go. However, Emily is keen to hold onto whatever control she has left and tells her she is too young to go. Debbie has other ideas and starts making plans to be there on the big night. Over at the Marsden's, Ronnie and Frances have made themselves scarce – but the party is off to a slow start. Ali claims to have a master plan, though, and promises everyone that the house is about to get a lot busier. Ali is good to his word and the party is soon bursting at the seams – but there is barely a familiar face in sight and when Ollie learns that most of the guests have gate-crashed after learning of it on the internet, Elaine begins to worry. Debbie has managed to sneak out from under the noses of Paddy and Emily but is soon in trouble at the hands of an uninvited party guest who tries to take advantage of her. Things start to spiral out of control as her cries for help are stifled by party noise and then the police are called. Down in the village, Nicola catches Danny red-handed passing Steph food supplies. After reading him the riot act, Danny is forced to let Steph know he can no longer be of service. Nicola is delighted, sure that she can now finally drive out Steph from her bolthole!
