Gabby packs her bag, tucks her Teddy under her arm and says bye bye to Laurel. Gabby lied about Marlon hitting her because she doesn’t want to live with him, so she’s going to live with Ashley – in the pub. Laurel’s devastated; she’s not Gabby’s birth mother, but she loves the little girl like she’s her own. Diane’s not giving free drinks all round to celebrate, either. Gabby’s her granddaughter and she loves her, too, but the pub’s going to need an extension if any more people move in! There’s now Chas, Dan (most of the time – and all of the time once he has married Chas), Diane, Ashley, Gabby – oh, and Victoria and/or Andy whenever the mood takes them…

Rachel doesn’t want Jai being a father to their baby only when the mood takes him, so she’s not happy when he fails to appear for the baby scan he booked. But Jai is at the hospital. The trouble is, Nikhil and Gennie are there, too and Jai walks right into them. Gennie’s suffering pains and they’re panicking but the doctor tells her she’s OK, the contractions are a practice run for the real thing. Jai explains his appearance by saying Rishi sent him. All very believable… For now.

Cameron finds Chas’s behaviour unbelievable. He’s furious that she has ignored all his messages about Carl demanding her return. Now, though, she’s on her way back…
