Mitch Baker is horrified by news from Kheerat Panesar, Stacey Slater offers an olive branch to her mum and Sharon Mitchell learns something surprising.
Mitch Baker arranges to meet up with Kheerat Panesar again as he wants to find out more about his dealings with his daughter Chantelle Atkins. Kheerat reveals that he spoke to Chantelle all through lockdown and she confessed that she was struggling being with her husband Gray Atkins.
Coming to the conclusion that Gray found out about Chantelle’s plans to leave him, Kheerat suggests that they must have had a huge row that left Chantelle fatally hurt. With Kheerat’s theory putting Mitch into a spin, he doesn’t know what to think.
Angry and frustrated, he heads off and tells Chantelle’s mum Karen Taylor about Kheerat’s theory. Can Karen believe that her son-in-law could ever do anything to hurt Chantelle?
Stacey Slater is feeling awkward now she’s back in the Square as she’s concerned that mum Jean Slater will never be able to forgive her for leaving.
Stacey’s cousin Kat Slater reminds her that Jean had to go through a lot while Stacey was away from beating breast cancer to losing the love of her life, Daniel Cook. Can Stacey make things up to her mum?
