A desperate Ian hatches a plan to keep the truth hidden. Max arranges a family celebration, but things soon turn sour. Lauren comes clean to Whitney about her blossoming relationship.


Denise tells Ian that Patrick is making good progress, but Ian is concerned by this as he still fears that Patrick will reveal his secret. Soon afterwards, Denise and Ian go to visit Patrick at the hospital. Oblivious to the tense atmosphere between both men, Denise leaves Patrick and Ian together while she goes to speak to a doctor.

Denise is told that Patrick is now well enough to return home, but Ian tries to stay one step ahead by desperately hatching a plan. He tells Denise that he has spoken to Kim and Anthony, who both think that Patrick would be better off in a care home.

Meanwhile, Whitney and Lauren confide in each other about their new relationships. Whitney explains that she hopes to take things slowly with Lee, while Lauren admits that she wanted to do the same with Dean but they have already slept together. Whitney is later given food for thought and changes her mind following some advice from Carol.

As the day continues, Dean upsets Lauren when he insists that their relationship is strictly casual, but he changes his mind when he sees her hurt reaction. Dean then goes to The Vic to make Linda aware of his and Lauren's relationship.

Elsewhere, Jay promises Abi that he will move with her when she goes to university. Later, Max arranges a family meal to celebrate Abi's success, but he is annoyed when Dot brings Charlie along. Other factors also mean that the family gathering soon takes another turn for the worse. After offending Dot and Charlie, Max tells Jay that he can't go with Abi. With everyone frustrated by Max's attitude, the guests all leave the meal.
