Rachel is furious with Jai realising he hasn't told Charity the situation. He apologises, but explains he cannot lose Charity. Later, Rachel is gobsmacked when Jai tells her he will pay for her to live in a posh flat in Leeds. Rachel is adamant she is proud of her baby and will not be hidden away, but Jai insists he just wants what is best for his child and doesn't want Rachel struggling to pay the bills. But Rachel remains angry and insists that she and the baby are not for sale, leaving Jai gutted. Later, Jai attempts to talk Rachel round, explaining that the baby means everything to him. Rachel is touched as he says he wants to be a good dad, but cannot if she is living round the corner from him.

Paddy pleads with him to change his mind but Marlon doesn't back down, leaving Paddy devastated. Later at Mulberry Cottage, Laurel supports Marlon with his decision to see a solicitor. Marlon is aware that Sandy will be home with the children any time and makes to leave, not wanting to put her in an awkward situation. He is grateful when Laurel agrees to meet him before he sees the solicitor the following day.
