Deirdre tells Tracy she's not willing to lie for her in court. Tracy's furious and blames Ken for her mother's change of heart. Leanne goes to meet a client and accidentally leaves her handbag behind. Janice goes after her. Carla offers to find Liam some more Polish factory workers but he's unsure if it's a good idea as Wiki has already proved unpopular with the other girls. Tracy stands up in court and testifies. She gives a brilliant performance to the jury, painting herself as the loving girlfriend and victim. Kayleigh moves out of No.6. Teresa comes to pick her up. It's obvious there's no love lost between Jerry and Teresa. The prosecution insists Tracy shows the jury how she lifted the ornament with one hand, but Tracy struggles to pick it up. Janice interrupts Leanne's liaison with her client to return her handbag. She embarrasses the client and he leaves. Leanne's furious. Claire takes the witness stand and paints Tracy as the victim and Charlie as a bully, but the prosecution quickly point out Claire's on medication and was recently sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Deirdre realises that she's Tracy's only hope and against her better judgement agrees to stand by her daughter.
