Sharon drops off some leftover baby items for the Taylors, but is wrong-footed when Karen asks her to keep an eye on Kayden while she gets ready for her leaving party. Sharon falls asleep with Kayden, so Karen reminds her that it’s not too late to change her mind about who raises the baby. Sharon can’t talk about it and rushes off.
Later, Sharon and Phil start to look to the future, knowing that it will just be the two of them. But deep down, is this really what Sharon wants?
Meanwhile, Phil urges Ben not to mess up their planned job. Ben decides to do his own thing, carrying out a secret deal and hiding a package from Phil. Callum spots how evasive his boyfriend is, prompting Ben to crumble.
Elsewhere, Jean wants Stacey back home and plans to speak to Phil, hoping that he’ll forget what Stacey did. Shirley tries to stop Jean from speaking to Phil, but she refuses to listen and dresses up to win Phil over. Shirley urges Kush to put a stop to this situation and call Stacey.
Also today, Keegan breaks down after admitting that he didn’t have insurance on the vandalised food truck, while Max throws out Vinny and Dotty for getting up to no good at the club.
