When paramedics arrive on the scene, they rush Ben to hospital. But can he be saved?
Phil confronts Sam about the drugs
Following Ben’s collapse, Zack tells Sharon the shock news, and she works out that her brother is keeping something from her. And after working out what Zack is concealing, Sharon puts Phil in the picture: Sam knew about the drugs and has been letting it happen.
Wednesday’s drama then finds Sam on edge as Phil ignores her calls, and she ends up instructing Zack not to tell anyone about the drugs before warning Jonah that the dealing has to stop.
But Sam is destined to find herself in hot water when Phil confronts her and reveals that he now knows about her nefarious activities. Following the showdown, Sam is left furious that it was Zack’s loose lips that has got her in trouble, so she decides to fire him. But might Kat be about to turn the tables where that plan is concerned?
What is Howie’s big secret?
When Howie suggests a date night to Kim so they can talk, she assumes he’s going to propose. But thinking that it’s too soon, Kim plans to let Howie down gently.
Howie, though, is at that moment meeting with a woman by the name of Delilah, who’s imploring him to tell Kim his secret. But can he summon up the courage to do so?
Suki v Kheerat
Kheerat has bombshell news for Suki: not only has he rented No 41 so that he, Ash and Vinny can move out; but he’s also planning on buying her out of the businesses.
Tensions then flare further later in the week when Suki makes a business pitch for Ranvir, only for him to question why Kheerat is making a rival bid. She covers and makes out that Kheerat is merely trying to be independent. But when Ranvir’s son Ravi arrives, he pushes Kheerat’s buttons and quizzes him about his “disloyalty” towards his mum.

The Taylors are preparing for Avery’s ‘Nne Night’, with Felix and Finlay sent off to do the shopping.
While out, Felix spots Kim and gives her a lipstick they’d been discussing previously. But Felix is soon thrown into a panic when he realises the money for the shopping was in the bag containing the lipstick – and Kim has now thrown the bag away!
After a desperate search, Felix and Finlay are forced to come clean and admit they’ve lost the money. And the situation worsens the following day when an upset Mia is told the Taylors can no longer afford to take her to a theme park to celebrate her birthday. Feeling guilty, Finay then comes up with an idea that he hopes will remedy the situation…
