More info

Tensions are running high at The Vic following the Carters' discovery about Tina's actions. As the family try to get answers out of Tina, Mick gets suspicious about the source being close to home. When Aunt Babe arrives at the pub, she realises that the family are on to her. Mick and Shirley are then forced to visit the Butcher family in the hope of persuading Carol to keep quiet and not go to the police.

Later, when the Carters see the police visiting the Butcher house, Mick and Dean head straight to Aunt Babe's home to destroy the evidence. Mick, Dean and Aunt Babe move the cannabis into the car, leaving Dean with the responsibility of disposing of it. However, Dean and Aunt Babe have made a secret plan of their own - involving Dean stashing the drugs at Blades…

Meanwhile, Carol is bracing herself for her operation, but has lots of other worries on her mind due to the police scrutiny surrounding her family. She calls on Charlie for some advice from a policeman's perspective, but things take an unexpected turn when she makes a surprising discovery about Charlie…

Elsewhere, Dot starts planning the World War I centenary ceremony.

Also today, Lee comes up with a plan to woo Whitney after Bianca stops him from seeing her.

Finally, Sharon fires Roxy and goes back to work despite Phil's concerns.
