Dot is delivered some devastating news. Wracked with guilt, Ian has a change of heart, but will he regret it? With Lauren slipping away from him, will Peter reveal his true feelings?


Spooked by recent events, Yvonne tells Charlie that they need to run away to Ireland immediately. When Charlie receives a message from Nick, it confirms Yvonne's fears and makes her even more determined to leave. Charlie doesn't want to go after bonding so much with Dot, but Yvonne manages to change his mind.

Wanting to make sure that Charlie goes through with it, Yvonne accompanies him to the Square and tells Dot that Charlie has been transferred to Ireland and has to leave straight away. Charlie and a devastated Dot then say a tough goodbye to each other.

Meanwhile, Denise isn't impressed by any of the care homes she visits with Ian. When they both go to see Patrick again, Ian's guilt overwhelms him and he finally tells Patrick that he can live with them. Denise is thrilled with Ian's change of heart.

Elsewhere, Lee is on cloud nine over his relationship with Whitney, but he starts to panic when she is late for their latest date.

Also today, Dean reconsiders his attitude towards Lola when Lauren gives him a hard time. Later, Lauren provides Peter with an opportunity to come clean about his feelings for her, but he lies and blames his recent behaviour on the stress of the recent press appeal. Soon afterwards, Lauren hears that Dean has finally agreed to hire Lola. She goes to see him at Blades and he invites her out for the evening, but will Lauren agree to go?
