In the pub later on with Esther, Paul and Billy, Paul accidentally lets slip about Summer's condition and the teen runs out, mortified about her secret escaping.

2. Leanne meets up with Harvey

Lee is disturbed to find out Sam was writing to Harvey the whole time, and the criminal asks her to have a word and stop him.

Leanne confides in Nick about what she discovered from Harvey, and the pair confront Sam who's upset and admits he just wants to know why Harvey killed his mum. Sam asks to see Harvey, thinking that will stop him from sending letters - but Leanne and Nick are horrified.

Clever Sam stands tall and affirms it's his decision and his only, adding that if Nick and Leanne don't help him, he'll find a way. The tension bubbles over at Natasha's memorial lunch, and it's Audrey who has a heart-to-heart with little Sam where Nick failed.

Bridget calls Stu from prison and reveals they both pled guilty for murder - and she would like Stu to become Eliza's carer.

With the boss clearly trusting her, she decides to make the most of the situation and, dressed head-to-toe in Bernie's clobber, robs the jewellery store for all it's worth one lunch time.

When a police officer arrives to arrest Bernie, she's stunned. The police officer shows Bernie CCTV footage, and she comes to the horrible realisation that she's been stitched up something rotten by Fern.
