Later, at the party in the Woolie, having been consoled by Luke (Max Parker) and Bob (Tony Audenshaw), Wendy is taken by surprise when Vic gives her a hug. It’s a big moment for the pair who have had a very bumpy journey to get to this point.

Happy dad David is on cloud nine and his day is made perfect when he hears from the court that he’s been given parental responsibility for Theo who was dumped on his doorstep last Christmas by David’s abusive ex Maya (Louisa Clein).
