But her unwise regime looks set to put Bernie in big danger when, after feeling faint, she ends up collapsing. Keegan is quick to rush to his sister’s aid, while Gray calls an ambulance as a frantic Rainie looks on in shock. And when she’s then asked what medication she’s on, Bernie is forced to admit that she’s been taking diet pills.

Keegan is then left reeling when Bernie adds that it was Tiffany who gave them to her…

Surprise passion for Keegan and Dotty

Keegan is angry with Tiffany for two reasons. Reason number one: she’s been supplying Bernie with the pills. Reason number two: she’s had more cosmetic work done.

Feeling disgruntled, he heads to the club to pick up his wages from Dotty, only to find her in a drunken state following a row with Vinny. 

Tiff, meanwhile, is feeling ill due to her filler infection getting worse. But when she rings Keegan for help, he ignores the call as things are suddenly heating up between him and Dotty…

Nancy and Frankie end up in a police cell

Nancy’s turmoil as regards Zack has sent her into a tailspin and she’s now decided to go on holiday with some girls she’s met. But Sharon is unhappy with her for leaving the gym without giving any notice.

Worried about her sister, Frankie tracks her down to the Albert. But when one of the girls who Nancy has met insults Frankie, a fight breaks out. The result? Nancy and Frankie find themselves locked in a police cell. But at least this unexpected spell of incarceration offers them the time to open up to each other and talk through the situation with Zack.

Phil to do a runner with Raymond?

Phil’s go-to lawyer Ritchie has given him bad news: it’s going to be hard for him to get custody of Raymond. But Phil, who’s never one to take a considered approach when a kneejerk reaction will suffice, tells Kat that he’s planning to take Raymond and do a runner.

Kat begs him not to and Phil gives her until the end of the day to convince him, otherwise he’s going through with it. Hence Kat then meeting with Denise and begging her to relent and let Phil see his son.

Kat’s lifeline for Billy backfires

As well as advising Phil, Kat will also be seen aiding Billy, secretly planting a rare record on his stall that he can sell for a profit.

But kind-hearted Billy ends up giving the record to Janet, only for it to then end up getting scratched. Kat then offers Billy shelter – a move that annoys Phil, who orders him out.
