There are baby problems all over the shop in Soapland this week as two potential new mothers are set to face the music. Coronation Street’s Amy learns that she is pregnant at 14, and now she must decide not only whether or not she can go through with it, but whether to tell her parents who the father is.
And while she’s facing the world of babies, Emmerdale’s Victoria is too. She has a pregnancy test in hand and hurriedly hides it when Marlon and Jessie come home. Has she got something to tell?
As well as that there’s a fair bit of cheating going on with Keanu getting it on with Louise in EastEnders, Romeo snogging Lily in Hollyoaks (which will have devastating consequences) and Sarah Platt turning to Adam in Coronation Street.
Amy reveals to her family that she is pregnant, and Amy and Steve’s first order of business is to find out who the dad is. Amy refuses to tell them so they jump to all sorts of conclusions, and come to believe it’s Simon’s. Worse news is to come for them when they realise Amy is already 10 weeks along.
Sarah is getting more and more frustrated by her situation with Gary. He hid their money worries from her and now it results in them having to sleep on lilos in Audrey’s front room. Things are set to get even more frustrating for her when Nicola arrives back on the scene and reveals Gary is behind on his child maintenance.
Sarah is at the end of her tether, and it might just drive her to do something stupid. She heads to the pub to drown her sorrows where she bumps into Adam and he suggests a nightcap back at his flat. They flirt over wine and Adam tries to kiss her. Later, when she leaves the flat she’s seen by Seb. He thinks she’s being hassled so wades in and ends up in a fight with Adam. He realises the truth, will he tell Gary?
Carla is worried when she can’t find Roy on the day of the anniversary of Hayley’s death and takes the drastic measure of reporting him to the police. He eventually returns home and all is well, but he’s set for devastating news when he learns mum Sylvia’s suffered a heart attack. He heads off to Hastings to be with her, but when he returns he reveals he was too late – Sylvia died.
Victoria is annoyed at Ellis and Billy’s inability to get on, so she comes up with a plan to lock them in the Portakabin until they make peace. But things take a turn when Billy starts suffering a panic attack. Later, Victoria tries to get in touch with Ellis urgently, but when she’s interrupted by Marlon and Jessie she throws a pregnancy test under the sofa. Has she got some big news for Ellis?
Charity draws the short straw as the one who must talk to Cain and she’s shocked at the state she finds him in. They talk, but he misreads the signals and goes in for a kiss. She’s left having to fight him off, and Matty has captured it all on camera. Moira is devastated by the betrayal and Debbie can’t believe everything her dad has done. But is he about to face the music when the police arrive to arrest him for Joe’s murder?
Bob’s circumstances make a serious turn for the worse when he’s left unable to pay for accommodation after buying someone a drink. He decides to bunk down in the cellar of the pub, but he’s caught and sent on his way. He opts for Brenda’s car, but he’s at a loss when she asks for her keys back. He has only one option left – with nowhere else to go he has to sleep on the bench by the river.
Keanu is working on a car for Phil and when Louise arrives to see him, Phil warns her off. Louise argues back and she’s shocked when Phil ends up inviting Keanu for dinner. He wants to set them up. But things go Pete Tong when Keanu argues it would be wrong as it’s his brother’s ex girlfriend. Phil later corners Keegan and asks him to give Louise and Keanu his blessing, and he agrees – for cash. What does he want it for?
Alfie’s lies are coming to get him and he’s in trouble when Ian wants to withdraw his investment. At a loss, he heads to see Phil and asks for a loan. But shortly after, Kat receives a text saying he’s in trouble. The Slaters have problems of their own when the bailiffs turn up. Kat later finds half of a message from Alfie but the other half is gone, so she turns the house upside down looking for clues as to where he went. Phil barges in when he learns Alfie has done a bunk with his money, and he is furious.
Linda is worried when Mick refuses to speak to Johnny and when Megan arrives complaining about the football team, he seems to get easily wound up. He later reveals to Linda the reason he’s upset – Megan reminds him of Nancy. As he slowly starts to thaw – and agrees to coach the team again – Mick is ready to get his family back on track, and asks Linda to call Nancy and Johnny.
