Amy and Denzel are caught out
Lily is left feeling concerned when she learns that Amy is planning to sleep with Denzel. But Amy won’t be deterred, and when Jack and Denise go out for the evening, she decides to take advantage of being home alone.
Stacey, though, has picked up on the signs that Lily is hiding something and, after she discovers what the youngster knows, she goes hunting for Jack.
Denzel, meanwhile, arrives at Amy’s and tells her that he wants to take things slowly. But just as the two of them start to kiss, a furious Jack barges in and pins Denzel against the wall. As tempers fray, will Denise be able to defuse the tension?
Jack seeks solace with Sam
In the wake of his showdown with Denzel, Jack gets a call from his boss – he’s been reported for assaulted Denzel and will now be investigated.
As he reels from the information, Jack starts throwing accusations around about who he believes to be responsible. But after venting spleen, he’s left surprised as Sam offers him a listening ear over a few drinks.
But during the heart to heart, Sam leans in for a kiss – unaware that there’s a witness to her actions, who’s filming the incident. And, by the week’s end, both Jack and Denise have received the incriminatory video footage…
