Eve has a message for Suki
Despite Stacey questioning her motives, Eve manages to secure a lunch date with Nish and Suki. As viewers will see on Monday, Suki is less than pleased, but Eve tells her she isn’t going anywhere.
During the lunch itself, Eve offers Nish some legal advice. But when a flustered Suki is called away by Ravi, we’ll see Nish question why Suki is so tense around Eve.
His concerns also mount later in the week when Nish tells Suki that he’s booked a business trip away for the two of them, only for Suki to decline the offer.

Later in the week, Alfie also decides to help with Tommy’s school fundraiser, which he swears to Kat has nothing to do with efforts to get Phil’s money back.
And as Alfie rallies volunteers for a plan he has in mind, Kat can’t help but be impressed. Might this offer a glimmer of hope where their future is concerned?
