CARLA FEARS ABI MAY DEVELOP A NEW ADDICTION Peter calls at number 11 and tells Abi she needs to get some help. Carla is suspicious when Peter lies to her about going to meet Abi and when she finds out he is helping her with her addiction Carla warns him to be careful as it’s not that long ago Abi was in love with him. Meanwhile Kev’s sister Debbie arrives at the house with a large suitcase and marks Abi’s card and warns her not to mess her brother about. Abi assures her she wouldn’t dream of it.
GEMMA AND PAUL GET READY TO RUMBLE When Gemma presents him with a signed photo of PJ and Duncan, Paul can hardly believe his eyes. As ‘Ready to Rumble’ strikes up, Paul and Gemma show off their moves. Billy returns home and apologises to Paul for missing his party. He assures Paul that he has no interest in Todd, but was simply supporting his friend Sean.
TODD IS OFFICIALLY MISSING Sean confirms that Todd is now officially on the missing persons’ list. Sean and Billy meet up with the Finding People charity who assure them they’ll do everything they can to try and find Todd.
ELSEWHERE As Daniel witters on about Bertie, he realises Cherry is bored. Asserting that it just isn’t working, Daniel ends the call and stares forlornly at Sinead’s photo. Jenny rails at Johnny for leaving her to run the pub single handedly, convinced there’s something he’s not telling her.
