Doreen and Derek leave to go back home. They suggest that Joshua should come with them to give Ashley a break but Ashley refuses. Sarah decides she's going to have two birthday parties, one for family and one for her mates. Ken goes to see Miss Johnson and hands in his resignation. He doesn't even turn up at the hearing as he thinks it's a foregone conclusion. Toyah tells Maria and Fiz that she's decided to move in with John Arnley. They are gutted but daren't say anything. Harry draws the raffle for the signed football. Tommy wins it. Ashley pours his heart out to Fred and tells him of Maxine's one-night stand with Matt Ramsden and how Joshua could be Matt's son. Fred is shocked. Ashley goes on to tell Fred that his biggest fear is that now Maxine has died Matt might insist on a paternity test. Should the test prove that Joshua is Matt's and not Ashley's, he could take Joshua away from Ashley.
