Later, Sarah forces Laurel to play games with her, while Kerry sits drinking wine with a magazine. Kerry has to take over when Laurel goes home and her impatience soon upsets Sarah. After Sarah goes to bed, Kerry wants a cigarette and leaves the house to nip to the shop. With Kerry gone, Jack starts to cry and Sarah gets up to try to warm some milk on the hob.

In The Woolpack, Nicola is on the phone to the surveyor and Steve quizzes her about it. Nicola tells him that her lips are sealed, refusing to give anything away. Steve still wants to bring Declan down a peg or two. Also, Priya thinks Dom and Alicia are perfect for each other and tries to set them up, Chas and Cameron are getting on better but a call from his ex-wife Anna threatens things as Cameron is told that he needs to return to Jersey to look after his kids, while Belle seeks answers from Jimmy about why Thomas left.
