When the conversation descends into a row, however, Jean starts to feel unwell. Worried that it’s too much for cancer sufferer Jean, Stacey tells Kush that enough is enough and she will be hiring her own solicitor.
Worried, Kush tells girlfriend Kat Moon that he’s not sure he can find the money to pay for counsel but Kat reassures him that it will be okay. What has she got up her sleeve?
