It’s Jim Branning’s 80th birthday so why not throw a party he can’t attend and, even better, get a recovering alcoholic to organise it? Dot’s not impressed. Quite rightly she thinks Jim’s relatives should be visiting him, not toasting him in his absence. But the celebrations do give Lauren the chance to talk to Joey and it seems that there’s a chance they could rekindle their romance. There are a few obstacles to overcome as the week goes on, though: her discovery that he slept with Whitney and the flattering attentions of Jake (Jamie Lomas, bad boy Warren Fox in Hollyoaks), a guy she meets at her first counselling session.
Lauren decides to throw a surprise party in honour of Jim's 80th birthday, but becomes paranoid as the guests dodge the alcohol in her presence, while Carol, Max and Jack are made to feel guilty when Dot confronts them about never visiting their father. Whitney starts work back at the community centre, where she has her hands full with Dennis, and Roxy receives a phone call, although she is forced to end it quickly when Jack arrives. Janine smugly tells Michael that she and Danny are an item - but is everything as it seems?
