Paddy detects tension between Vanessa and Charity as the pair struggle to keep their eyes off each other.

After getting no response from Alex, Dawn and Billy drive to his house and nervously broach the subject of Billy adopting Lucas with an unreadable Alex. Initially incensed by the idea, Alex eventually accepts Billy and Dawn’s adoption proposal.

Dawn’s worries are realised when Alex demands that she pays off his debts in return for consenting to Lucas’ adoption…What will she do?

Noah wants a party but Charity says no, she doesn’t want mess or anyone having sex in her bedroom.

Samson’s crush on Amelia deepens and as the drinks flow at a party hosted by Cathy, Noah plans to use Amelia to make Chloe jealous, and enlists disapproving Samson to keep Cathy busy whilst he does so. However, when the truth of what he is up to soon comes out, Amelia is heartbroken.
