Ashley's starting to feel like a failure and his disagreements with Doug aren't making his life any better. Eager to keep his reputation in tact, Ashley turns down Sally's offer to look after Gabby. Later, an ever persistent Sally turns up out of the blue with some dinner for Gabby and insists on looking after her while he works. Exhausted by the situation, Ashley reluctantly leaves Sally to it. An apologetic Doug returns home and expresses his sincere regret over the words they exchanged earlier in the day. However, when he sees Ashley drinking wine with Sally, Doug's quick to retract his apology, before storming off. Ashley's left shaken. When Doug walks down the stairs with his suitcase in tow, he's not surprised to see that Sally's there waiting for him. Sally suggests that she leave but when Doug physically shows her where the door is, Ashley's quick to step in. Again, Doug's shocked that Ashley is choosing Sally over his family. Seething, Doug states that Ashley and Sally deserve each other. When Ashley orders Doug out of the house, Sally tries to comfort a shaken Ashley. However, he firmly tells Sally to leave, too. Meanwhile, Holly's stunned by Aaron's disinterest in her and is frustrated when her flirting goes unnoticed. Instead, Aaron spurs a play fight with Adam, who abandons Holly, allowing her to walk home by herself. Elsewhere, Maisie's intrigued when she and Ryan share a flirty moment at the bar. Ryan then uses Jamie as an excuse to flirt with her further.
