Steve and Becky are barely speaking after last night's discussion about children. Rosie's in a flap because Graeme broke one of her roller skates. Michelle lectures Ryan about protective sex. Ryan's embarrassed. When Natasha pulls out of the Stylists' Dinner, Audrey furtively phones Lewis and hires him to be her escort for the evening. Becky gives Claire a mouthful for breaking her trust and telling Steve what she'd told her in confidence about not wanting kids. Dev visits Sunita. He does a jigsaw with the kids and makes an effort to be civil to Matt. Sunita starts to thaw towards him. Sophie's upset with Sian for breaking their pact and having sex with Ryan. Ryan asks Michelle if Sian can stay the night. Michelle's agreeable so long as Sian's parents don't mind. Sian tells Ryan she'll lie to her dad and pretend she's at Sophie's house. Steve broaches the subject of children again with Becky but she's adamant she never wants any. Steve wonders if he did the right thing marrying Becky.
