Nikki is resolute that she wants nothing to do with Roxy and prepares to move out of the flat. Nikki’s determination becomes redundant when Roxy goes into early labour. Roxy has been overdoing it at work and all grievances are forgotten when Nikki has to deliver Roxy’s baby in the back of her car. Roxy battles not to get attached to the baby boy but worries when he is not breathing properly.
Meanwhile, Lara and Simon are finding it increasingly hard to hide their feelings. Lara is concerned when she sees her photo has been defaced and her car badly keyed. Back at Simon’s flat, Tally disturbs a passionate moment between them by hurling a brick through the window. When they confront her, she unleashes a tirade of abuse and leaves in tears, devastated by Lara’s betrayal.
