KEN GETS THROUGH TO PETER Carla implores Peter to stop drinking and prove to Simon how much he loves him but Peter storms out. As a broken Simon washes his hands of Peter, Ken’s horrified to hear what’s happened. He finds Peter drunk in a hotel bar but when Ken tries to take his drink off him, Peter lashes out. Ashamed of his actions, Peter breaks down and admits he wants to give up the booze but doesn’t know how.

DEBBIE’S PLOT THICKENS Debbie tells the officer that she found Abi unconscious on the bistro floor, thought she’d overdosed, so called an ambulance. Debbie persuades Kevin to let her sign the garages back to him, telling him he can also keep the £90k that he was paid.

EILEEN AND GAIL REVIVE AN OLD FEUD Gail and George are thrilled to realise they share a set of great great grandparents, Fanny and Augustus Page. Mary and Eileen call at the pub and are unimpressed to see George fawning over Gail. As Eileen and Gail embark on a slanging match, George wonders what he’s got himself into.

ELSEWHERE Over dinner, Aggie and Grace paint on smiles for Michael’s sake, but secretly wonder how on earth they’re going to keep up the facade.
