When Andy tells Bernice that he and Chrissie are going to tell Lawrence about their relationship, he gets the wrong idea and pays for some thugs to beat Andy up. But, later, when Lawrence sees Chrissie cradling an injured Andy, the penny drops and he realises he’s got it wrong. 

2. Lawrence has a heart attack

Chrissie is shocked to realise that her dad was the one who hired the thugs and confronts Lawrence about what has happened. Later on, Lawrence collapses on the floor in the middle of a cardiac arrest, with only Robert around to offer any help. But will Robert get assistance or leave his former father in law to die?

Zak is far from amused when Kerry says that Rishi has changed the work rota because he fancies Joanie. And his anger only grows when he learns that Joanie will actually be working side by side with Rishi in the office. In the end, Zak ends up punching Rishi in front of a mortified Belle and Lisa.
