Nancy is still reeling following the bombshell revelation that Darren has been having a secret affair with Mandy, but an optimistic Darren is clinging on to the hope that he can patch things up and that the pair of them can move forward.
Having been told they can foster Brooke, he’s desperate to make a fresh start of things and begins grovelling to long-suffering Nancy, telling her he had already ended his affair.
However, Nancy is not about to forgive and forget any time soon. As things get heated the accusations fly and children Charlie and Oscar overhear the couple arguing and worry that they’re going to split up.

Brody is also worried when he sees Luke and Ollie loading a car with bags and the penny drops that the pair are planning to flee from Chester.
