Whilst waiting for an engineer, Rishi dances around the factory singing 'Hot In Herre'. He unbuttons his shirt and prances into the staff room but gets a fright when he sees Nell in there. Carly takes Matt into the backroom where she apologises to her ex. Matt shouts, questioning why she got in touch after all this time, especially as she didn't contact him after Billy died. Carly struggles to hold back the tears as Matt recalls how he heard his son died from a man in a pub. Carly reminds him he didn't want anything to do with her or Billy.
