Carrie is upset when she discovers her partner, Gabe, has been having an affair with her work colleague, Liz. At work, Kerry punches Liz where she suffers a cracked rib. Whilst on his mobile, Gabe crashes his car outside. At the hospital, Gabe’s condition deteriorates and Selena discovers he is allergic to penicillin and that Stitch knew. She lectures him about his negligence, where he returns to his office to find that his online winnings have been stolen.
Meanwhile, Gabe tells Carrie, he felt sorry for Liz because she is dying of cancer – however Carrie later discovers Liz has been lying.
A woman, Linda, is brought in after injuring herself doing a charity jump. She has a TV aerial stuck in her leg. Annoyed at having to wait, she decides to pull it out herself whilst her daughter blames Stitch for putting the idea in her head.

Tess tells Abs she can’t make the dance competition as she’s working a double shift but she’s unhappy when Abs says Charlie can cover.
