Goodness knows why that Nikki keeps boomeranging back. Every time she shows up, someone either throws some Christmas dinner at her or launches her into a pile of bin bags. But here she is again, deluding herself that a reunion with Terry is on the cards. Fingers crossed he sets her straight and we get to see those stilettos clattering off into the sunset for the final time.

Carol is still in two minds about whether to go ahead with Tina’s illegal scheme and seeks advice from Dot. Come on, Carol, we talking about Dot here. At the first sign of anything less than legit, all she’ll do is down two medicinal sweet sherries and quote three relevant passages from the Bible.

About this programme

Carol visits Dot for advice on whether she should go ahead with Tina's not-entirely-legal plan, but her mother-in-law gets confused and thinks she is referring to the operation. Things get even more complicated when the women at Sonia's diet class insist on talking about Carol's cancer - prompting her to make a momentous decision. Roxy also comes to a drastic conclusion about her future, while Nikki is keen to tell the kids her good news - until Terry admits that recent events have given him a change of heart.
