On Tuesday, Ella becomes convinced that Warren is her long-lost father. Excitedly, she confides in Leah about her theory, but their conversation is overheard by none other than Ste. Shocked by the revelation, Ste learns that Cindy has abandoned Ella to visit Blackpool. Realizing the magnitude of Ella’s struggles, he offers her some much-needed advice on how to handle the situation with Warren.
As Wednesday dawns, Leah informs her father about Charlie’s manipulative behavior towards Ella. With Cindy still unreachable, he rushes off to confront the bewildered teenager himself, eager to set things straight.
Thursday brings anxiety and concern for Ella’s friends, who are attending the sixth form taster day.

However, Mason plays a crucial role in bringing Ella and Leah together, despite Ella’s initial resistance to accepting help from her well-meaning friend.
On Friday’s episode, Ella’s quest to uncover the truth escalates as she discovers more striking resemblances between herself and Warren.
