Feeling knackered and suffering from morning sickness, Gabby is starting to wonder if she's ready for the responsibilities of motherhood. Her doubts secretly delight Jamie, who's hoping he can convince Gab to have an abortion then ditch her for good.

Later, frustrated by the mixed signals he has been getting from Dawn, the devious vet is pleased when she admits she has feelings for him. The pair share a kiss, but are seen by Gabby, who's heartbroken by their betrayal.

Confronting Jamie, angry Gabby asks why he has been pretending to care for her. She is sickened to realise he has been keeping her sweet in the hope she'll terminate the pregnancy.

Determined that Kim should know exactly what kind of a man her son is, Gabby rushes off to find her. But just moments later, she suffers a dizzy spell and ends up taking a nasty fall.

Lying on the ground clutching her tummy, the terrified teen cries out to Jamie to help, but he stands and watches on in silence as Gabby loses consciousness. Will she and her unborn child be okay?

When Peter fails to turn up for his shift on the Streetcars switch, Steve heads to Number 1 and finds him staggering about the place, slurring his words. Jumping to the conclusion that he has fallen off the wagon again, disgusted Steve ignores Peter's plea that he's sober but unwell, and locks him in the house.

Elsewhere, oblivious to her partner's peril, Carla bonds with Lucas over their shared experiences of living with an addict and agrees to take the afternoon off to head into town with him. But when they return to the cobbles, they're met by Steve, who reveals Peter has collapsed and been rushed to hospital.

Coming round to find Carla by his bedside, groggy Peter insists he has no idea what happened to him, but he definitely wasn't boozing. She's not buying it though, and when Lucas seizes his chance and invites Carla to return to Devon with him, Steve tells her to cut her losses with Peter and go.

Just as it looks like Carla has decided to leave with Lucas, Peter's consultant confirms he wasn't drunk and his disorientation was caused by toxins arising from liver failure.

Feeling dreadful for doubting him, Carla begs Peter for forgiveness, but he doesn't want her to stay with him out of pity and tells her she must do whatever makes her happy.

The pain of losing her baby comes flooding back for Ruby after she shares a sweet moment with young Hope. Martin tries to comfort his grieving wife by showing her a shrine in memory of their child, but when they see Stacey playing with Hope, vengeful Ruby asks Martin just how far he's prepared to go to help her get over their loss.

That evening, all is revealed when the couple inform Stacey that she has been reported to the police over Ruby's tumble down the club stairs. To make matters worse, Martin made the call.

Forced to give a statement down at the station, Stacey insists the incident happened because Ruby lost her footing and the CCTV will confirm her story. After being released, Stace continues to plead her innocence to Ruby and Martin, insisting the crucial video evidence will clear her name.

The gravity of the situation soon dawns on Martin when lawyer Gray reveals that Stacey's previous criminal record means she'll go down if found guilty and advises him to start thinking about what will happen to their kids.

As worried Martin fears he has gone too far, Stacey returns to the station and desperately begs the Old Bill to realise Ruby has got a vendetta against her.

Mandy returns from holiday this week and dives straight into her wedding plans, seemingly not bothered that Charlie is in custody for a crime he didn't commit. Luke is appalled by his former wife's lack of remorse and thinks she should be focusing on more important things – like telling the police it was Ella who murdered Jordan.

But someone else might get there first when Nancy interrupts the pair's quarrel and hears more than she was meant to. Mandy is forced to think on her feet as suspicious Nancy demands an explanation. Will she be able to come up with a convincing cover story?

Elsewhere, Ella also panics when she receives a letter from Charlie, revealing that he wants to tell the truth about what really happened the night Jordan was stabbed. Has the net finally closed in on Mandy and her daughter?

Having hoped Shane and Amy's relationship would be a mere passing fling, Dipi is horrified to learn that her love rival has plans to open a boutique in a vacant lot in the Lassiters complex. Shane is excited at the prospect of his girlfriend putting down roots in Erinsborough, which only increases Dipi's jealousy.

Unable to control herself, Shane's envious ex crosses the line by stealing Amy's business proposal before Terese has the chance to look at it, leading her to miss out on the opportunity.

Consumed with guilt over what she has done, Dipi comes clean to Toadie. When Amy discovers who sabotaged her dream, she's fuming.

Shane isn't impressed either. As he lays into Dipi over her petty attack, she admits the real reason she did it – she still loves him and wants to give their marriage another go.

Shocked, Shane gently turns Dipi down, but it's clear her revelation has left him questioning which lady he wants to spend his future with.

It's the day Harriet has been dreading as the diggers arrive to exhume Richard's grave, the same plot where Malone's corpse was temporarily buried. As proceedings get under way, Harriet can only hope and pray the team don't discover any evidence of foul play.

Her agitated behaviour doesn't go unnoticed by Charles, who's growing increasingly concerned about his colleague's state of mind. In an attempt to calm her down, Charles leads them in a prayer for departed Richard, but twitchy Harriet declares that she wants to be left alone.

Moments later, it seems the vicar's worst fears have been realised when one of the workers discovers something suspect at the digging site. Petrified that her crimes have finally caught up with her, Harriet makes a decision, and leaves a letter for Will explaining what she's going to do.

The nightmare continues for Leanne when Simon invites Jacob and a gang of his unsavoury mates round to their flat, forcing her to hide out in her bedroom again.

Having previously ignored everyone's warnings about Jacob, Si is given a wake-up call when his cocky pal reveals he has been ripping off Harvey, the big boss, by stealing some of his gear to sell on the side.

Later, Simon is terrified when Harvey approaches, wanting to know if he's in on the scam. Simon insists he knows nothing. Harvey falls for the fib, but issues Simon a sinister warning that he must carry on working for him if he values his safety.

Scared witless, Simon confides in Leanne, who insists they must report Harvey to the police immediately. But just as the pair are head out, news reaches them that Kelly has collapsed after taking an ecstasy pill sold to her by Simon.

In a panic, the teen declares that there's no way he can grass on Harvey now, so Leanne decides she'll tackle the dangerous drugs baron herself...

It's all kicking off in the Fox household when Jack reveals that Chelsea propositioned and blackmailed him. Appalled, Denise confronts her daughter, but is stunned when she blames her and Lucas's parenting for her bad behaviour.

Continuing her manipulation, Chelsea turns on the waterworks in front of Lucas, telling him that she'd already be six feet under if Jack had blown her drug smuggling plan.

Unaware he's being played, Lucas promises Chelsea a better life, but the penny finally drops when he overhears her taunting Jack in the Square. Once again, Chelsea tries to justify her actions and reminds Lucas that Caleb will kill her if she messes up the job.

Later, unaware of his true identity, Karen flirts with Lucas in the launderette and asks him to go for a drink with her. He agrees, and introduces himself as his late son Jordan. But his cover could be blown when Karen later sends a sneaky snap of her date to her family group chat.

The following day, still posing as 'Jordan', Lucas heads to a job interview with Caleb. Unfortunately, Caleb recognises he's Chelsea's dad straight away and warns him that he'd better do as he's told or else.

Forced to follow orders, Lucas reluctantly tells Chelsea that he's in on the job, but he wants something in return – her to go to church with him.

There's a new face in Hollyoaks when Sami's step-cousin Shaq makes a dramatic entrance to the village, having done a runner on his wedding day. Misbah is shocked to see her nephew in the area and wants an explanation as to why his nuptials haven't gone ahead. Will he tell her the truth?

Later, Misbah agrees to let Shaq stay on the condition there's no womanising under her roof. But the cheeky charmer clearly can't help himself, and when Misbah returns from a night shift, she catches Theresa sneaking out of her back door. Moments later, she sees Goldie doing the same.

Annoyed that Shaq appears to have disrespected her house rules, Misbah asks Marnie for help in reigning her relative in. But Marnie thinks Misbah may have jumped to the wrong conclusion about Shaq as she senses the newcomer is hiding a big secret.

Kieran's temper explodes when he catches Martha and Roo snooping in his caravan for evidence he has been drinking again. Manipulating the situation, Kieran tells Martha that if she doesn't trust him, then he might as well leave the Bay. This makes her back down and beg for his forgiveness.

The emotional blackmail routine might have worked on Martha, but Roo's not so easily fooled. When Kieran chillingly warns her never to come between him and his mum again, Roo turns to Irene for advice on dealing with her half-sibling's hidden alcoholism.

Following their chat, Roo returns to Kieran's caravan and finds a number of empty bottles, seemingly confirming her suspicions. But instead of showing the evidence to Martha, Roo goes to Alf, who's fuming to hear that Kieran threatened her.

Later, having failed to convince Martha that her son has succumbed to temptation, Alf and Roo confront Kieran at the surf club about his secret stash of booze. Tensions quickly boil over and angry Kieran launches himself at Alf, forcing Justin to intervene.

Shaken by the incident, Alf calls the cops and learns there's an outstanding warrant for Kieran's arrest. But by the time the police arrive on the scene, Martha reveals they're too late – Kieran has done a runner.
