Prince McQueen (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) has been out of his mind with worry ever since discovering a lump in his testicle. He’s finally been persuaded to go and get it checked out at the hospital but his wife Lily (Lauren McQueen)  still has no idea about the lump or what’s been troubling him.

Prince and Lily McQueen

Prince can’t bear to tell Lily the truth about his cancer fears

With his ultrasound appointment now due, Prince comes up with a cover story, telling Lily he’ll be out for some of the day at his mum Goldie’s court hearing. But how will he react when Lily tells him she wants to be at the court with him to support him. Is she about to discover that Prince hasn’t been honest with her?

Elsewhere Romeo Quinn (Owen Warner)  is feeling worried about the fact that his mum Goldie has switched Donna-Marie’s (Lucy-Jo Hudson) medication in a bid to get her to move out. He urges Goldie to come clean but later agrees to stay quiet so Donna-Marie’s daughter, Juliet, can finally have a proper Christmas.

Elsewhere, Cindy Cunningham (Stephanie Waring) wants to come home. Mac Nightingale (David Easter) gets his son Alfie on board in convincing Cindy that she needs to go into a private clinic. He tells Cindy they’ll be able to pay for the costly clinic by re-mortgaging her house and under Mac’s supervision, Cindy agrees to sign the necessary paperwork. But has she just put her signature to something else that scheming Mac has up his sleeve?

Plus Liam Donovan (Jude Monk McGowan) tells Lisa Loveday (Rachel Adedeji) to pick one of his late dad, Glen’s criminal contacts to do a deal with. However he’s furious when he discovers that Lisa has bought a whole lot of dodgy vodka and stored it all at The Loft!
