Having learnt from Bob that his confession was intended to protect Jamie, Viv finds it difficult to keep her emotions in check. Confused by her change in behaviour, Jamie is shocked when she finally snaps and demands that he admit the truth about the murder. He furiously protests his innocence. David confides in Del that he wants Eric to trust him, and when he reveals their plans to go into business together, she voices concerns. David echoes his eagerness for Eric's trust to Val who is relieved when he moots the idea of a paternity test. Meanwhile, Andy tries to persuade Jo to open up about her past. She's reluctant, but over drinks she starts to talk about her mum and reveals that the pair haven’t spoken since she was 14. The police step up the investigation when they arrive at the Kings’ to remove more evidence from the house. A broken Jamie heads to the police station to change his statement, adamant that Bob didn’t commit the murder. When Barraclough reveals Jamie's change in story to a horrified Bob, his worst fears are confirmed when he realises that they think Jamie did it. Meanwhile, Eric is worried that David will find out the results of the official DNA test, and is determined to get to them first. Attempting to cover all bases, Eric later makes steps to appear upset to David, suggesting that if the test results aren’t what they hope for, he already feels a fondness for him. Kelly, having decided to fleece Jimmy, steps up her efforts, by feeding him a sob story concerning her failed spa. However, when Jimmy suggests that she only wants him for his money, she feigns hurt and immediately has him right back in the palm of her money-grabbing hand.
