‘I love Tom. I don’t want to hurt him, just you,’ sneers shifty Simon to Gemma this week.

Unfortunately, the way they’re both carrying on with their vicious point-scoring, their troubled teenage son is really bearing the brunt.

As their split continues to take its toll on him, Tom clearly needs them to stop their increasingly twisted machinations and instead focus on him and offer him some much-needed help…

Amidst all the tension, however, a collective cheer may go up around the country when Tom finally snaps and asks his dad to desist from his annoying habit of calling him ‘mate’!

Meanwhile, as neighbour Anna offers Gemma the benefit of her wisdom, will she take it on board?
