Review by:
Jane Rackham

The number of prescription pain killers that Sharon is chucking down her neck, it’s a miracle she can see anything let alone notice that Jack has returned to the Square. But she does spot him and happily tells him that everything has worked out for the best because she is with Phil now. Or maybe not.

You’d think that Phil, with his history of addiction, would understand about her pill-popping, but when he finds her unconscious on the sofa, he’s not happy. The court hearing over who should be granted custody of Lola is just a few days away and he clearly doesn’t want Sharon to put the outcome in jeopardy.

About this programme

Sharon discovers Jack is back in Walford and tries to smooth things over between them, but Phil isn't too happy when he finds out she went to see her ex. Alice is put in a tricky situation when Michael asks her to go behind Janine's back and bring Scarlett round to see him, while Sam rejects Ava's request to leave Walford and determines to stay until he has made amends with Dexter. Plus Lauren is upset when her friends give her the cold shoulder, so she arranges a night out with Abi - only to get blind drunk instead.
