Gail's preoccupied by thoughts of Natasha's deception. Natasha's feeling wretched. Nick obliviously tells her to take the day off work. Sophie's not happy about dossing on Mikey's floor. Sian assures her that it won't be for long. Audrey warns Gail not to interfere by telling Nick about Natasha. She points out that they are not aware of all the facts and Nick may even know about the abortion. Ciaran tells Liz that he's got an interview for a chef's job in Glasgow. Michelle's upset that he might be leaving but hides her feelings. Sophie's disgusted when Mikey tries to kiss her. Sian returns from work and shouts at him for making a pass at her girlfriend. Sian and Sophie pack their bags. Gail visits Natasha and tells her that she knows about the abortion. Natasha's horrified and tries to explain herself. Gail's totally unsympathetic and orders her to tell Nick. Owen tactlessly tells Eileen he's taking Liz to the cinema but needs her to sort some paperwork for him. He leaves her some blank cheques to settle his invoices. Sophie tells Sian she wants to go home. Sian sympathises but can't face her dad. Resentful Eileen makes out a cheque to Jason for the wages Owen withheld and tells him not to breathe a word. Sophie rings Rosie from a phone box. She admits she's desperate to return home. Natasha drags Nick home and is about to come clean when Gail calls round. Realising that Nick is still in the dark, Gail reveals that Natasha's not pregnant. Nick's furious with his mother and tries to throw her out, but tearful Natasha is forced to admit that Gail's speaking the truth. Nick's crushed.
