Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) is cajoled by Harriet into going on a date with Ryan Stocks (James Moore). Already down on herself, the ex-prostitute’s self-confidence is further shattered when she runs into one of her old punters, Leon, from her time working the streets.
After jealous Ryan gets riled up by horrible Leon, he and Dawn head to Woodbine Cottage. There, Ryan’s taken aback when apologetic Dawn plants a kiss on him! Misjudging the situation, Ryan puts his foot in it in a major way when he goes on to offer to pay Dawn to sleep with him.
Elsewhere there’s a shock for Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler), and Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) and Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh) grow closer.
