Convinced he has unfinished business with Siobhan, Ronnie just can’t help himself and goes to see her. But his apologies fall on deaf ears and he is forced to leave after Siobhan gives him a frosty reception. Later on Ronnie continues to persist and Siobhan loses her temper when he tries to kiss her again. She reaches for a bottle of wine and wallops him with it shouting at him to get out. As Ronnie leaves the house, covered in red wine, he bumps straight into Paul who is confused by the state of his dad's appearance. Worried Paul heads straight to see Siobhan and finds her upset and startled. Siobhan knows it is time to come clean, but Paul refuses to believe that his dad has made a move on his wife. When Paul confronts his mum she finally reveals that Ronnie has been unfaithful before with Louise and Siobhan as a teenager. Pushed to the limit by her husband's persistent infidelity, Frances can no longer hide her fury. In a blind rage she takes an axe and proceeds to smash all the their personal belongings into smithereens. When Ronnie returns home Frances and the twins throw him out once and for all. Life is pretty cramped at Pear Tree Cottage with Marlon, Tricia and Charity all living under the same roof. But despite all the disruption Tricia is happy to be home and makes her way down to The Woolpack to fill Diane in on all the Bollywood glamour. Meanwhile, Paddy is troubled by his friend's revelation about his affair with Charity and the prospect that the child could be his. He advises Marlon to come clean to Tricia before it is too late. Needing some space Marlon tries to convince Charity that she has got to move out, but his request goes down like a lead balloon when she reminds him that she could be carrying his child. Charity argues she will only move out if Marlon pays her rent elsewhere.
