The unruly boy is scared to face the wrath of his mum alone so Andy accompanies him into the house.

Andy reluctantly takes his brother back to Butlers Farm for the night. Cain confides in Lisa over his feelings of betrayal after almost believing Charity about wanting to become a family. Meanwhile, Debbie senses Cain's hurt and so marches round to Pear Tree Cottage to give her mum a piece of her mind.

When Charity admits that she's a useless mother and is considering having an abortion Debbie emotionally blackmails her into promising to keep the baby whatever happens.
