After recent events Linda struggles to keep her head held high.

Stacey has a huge decision to make. What will she do?

Ian is shaken to the core when he receives an unexpected ultimatum.


An upset Linda tries to hold her head high following Cora's decision to humiliate Mick in the Queen Vic last week. However, her confidence takes a knock when Sharon brushes her off and she hears some of the locals talking about her. With Linda feeling vulnerable, Dean is happy to take advantage of this situation by taking her off to Blades to comfort her.

Johnny, Nancy and Lee are all upset over Cora's behaviour too, which leads to Nancy arguing with Lauren over what happened. When Lauren later confronts Cora, she is forced to reveal that Rainie was the prostitute who was caught with Mick.

Meanwhile, Alfie fears that Kat is taking on too much following the birth of the twins. Wanting to relieve at least one of Kat's burdens, Alfie visits Stacey and urges her to go ahead with the appeal. A non-committal Stacey requests that Jean visits herself. When Jean does, mother and daughter reminisce over how strong Stacey was as a child. Jean begs Stacey to show the same strength now for Lily's sake. What will Stacey decide?

Elsewhere, Ian snaps at Denise as his stress rises over the upcoming press appeal. Sharon tries to cheer Ian up, but his improved mood doesn't last for long when he receives a surprise ultimatum…
