As Hayley insists she’s determined not to be defined by her illness, Roy vows to be strong for her. With the karaoke underway (one of Hayley’s requests) she sets about enjoying Roy’s birthday celebrations.

But it’s clear that she is disappointed by Christian’s lack of contact.

As Chesney and Sinead spend their first night alone at No.5, there’s a sense of excitement about what the future holds for them.
