However, when Martin breaks the news to his ex-wife Sonia and their daughter Bex, the pair are both disappointed since they’d be enjoying having their own Fowler family reunited while Martin has been living with them. Still dealing with the death of boyfriend Shakhil, grieving Bex has some harsh words for Martin when she discovers her dad has been sneaking around with Stacey. Will Bex’s reaction effect Martin and Stacey’s big plans?

So Kat gathers Hayley, Mo, Jean and Stacey in the living room for a family vote on whether they want to keep Charlie’s beloved taxi or not.
