When Belle suggests this is why Cain killed Al, Chas wonders whether to admit to believing this theory too. Chas is manic with fear, terrified Belle will tell the family.

In true Kim Tate-style, the nanny interviews at Home Farm are a formal affair. Despite Billy’s reassurance, Dawn’s still uncomfortable with someone else looking after their kids. The panel interviews a strict, old-fashioned nanny. To Kim’s surprise, Gabby and Dawn refuse to employ her and press onto the next unlikely candidate. The panel (bar Kim) are impressed with Samantha and intend to deliver the good news after they’ve interviewed one final candidate. The competition for Home Farm’s Nanny gets hotter: when both Dawn and Gabby are both impressed with Nicky – a handsome male nanny. When Samantha declines the job, Gabby’s delighted to offer Nicky the job. Nicky accepts and agrees to meet her children. Whilst Kim and Gabby are excited for this new chapter, Dawn still needs a little convincing about having a nanny.
