Zoe is annoyed when Ashley gets at her about abandoning Shannon. She doesn't understand the fuss as she knew he'd look after her. Deirdre goes to see the bank manager, Mrs Briscoe, and is stunned to discover that she's been a joint account holder with Ian Jenkins. Deirdre offers to give back the £4,000 she's drawn out but the manager calls in the police when it's obvious they're dealing with fraud. Zoe packs and leaves with Shannon, going to a hostel. DS Wyatt takes Deirdre in for questioning. At the police station she tries to explain about Jon but the police don't believe she could be so gullible. She swears she was only going to withdraw the £5,000. Ken tells Alec he's going to retire from escorting as he was almost assaulted at the book launch and doesn't think it's worth it. Les gets a job as security man on the Red Rec, guarding the woods against protesters. Fred is delighted to hear Zoe has left but Ashley misses her. Deirdre urges the police to find Jon but he's disappeared. The police tell her it looks as if she's been left to carry the can.
