Darren Osborne (Ashley Taylor Dawson), defies Mandy’s wishes and sneaks off to visit his estranged wife Nancy (Jessica Fox).
Feeling guilty about his shoddy treatment of her, he feels the need to check that she’s ok following her recent collapse.
Little does he realise that Nancy, who suffers from MS, faked the attack to get to him and she’s now got him exactly where she wanted him.
When Nancy and Darren come face to face they end up having a heart to heart and it’s not long before the estranged pair end up kissing passionately.
However Nancy is angry when Darren pulls away and stops things from going any further. Furious to be let down by him once again, she angrily admits that she faked the MS attack.
But Darren has more to contend with when the other woman in his life, Mandy, drops some bombshell news!
Elsewhere, Farrah Maalik, (Krupa Pattani), encourages Cleo McQueen, who suffers with bulimia, to eat out and in return Cleo insists that Farrah keep her end of the bargain and ask Grace Black, (Tamara Wall), out. Will Farrah pluck up the courage to lay her feelings on the line?
Meanwhile, Liam Donovan, (Jude Monk McGowan) breaks into Maxine’s flat and interrogates her about transferring money to Kim. Things are about to get nasty but before Maxine, (Nikki Sanderson), can confess to anything, Grace barges in and tells Liam to back off.
Plus, Louis Loveday, (Karl Collins), is in a spin when Martine Deveraux, (Kelle Bryan), tells him she’s moving to the village on a permanent basis and it’s time they started living together as man and wife!
What on earth is Louis going to do about his live-in girlfriend, Leela Lomax?
