John Paul and Craig

John Paul chats with Craig online, they agree to meet up later. John Paul finds photos of the two of them in his back pocket and smiles. John Paul talks to Craig upstairs, who is looking out his window and invites him over for a sandwich. Sarah jokes it’s all very Romeo and Juliet seeing the two of them there like that.

Sarah and Craig are playing a game where they have a celebrity name stuck to their forehead and are trying to guess who they are. Craig is Robert de Niro. She’s a model, white and sexier than Kate Moss. Jake comes over and asks why Sarah actually has her own name on her forehead! Craigs says Sarah’s famous – or at least she will be. Jake wants to go watch a French movie with Nancy and Sarah offers to babysit Charlie for them.

Jake gives them a tonne of instructions for Charlie which freak out Sarah and Craig.

Craig gets a call from John Paul as he’s snuggling on the couch with Sarah watching a cheerleading chick flick. When he goes out to check on Charlie, John Paul calls again and Sarah answers. She jokes about him stealing her boyfriend and him being a stalker before telling him about the babysitting. John Paul is all awkward when she says they’re going to make out on the couch like 14 year olds and finishes the call before talking to Craig. He chucks down his phone in disgust. Craig just wants to snuggle and not get up to mischief. Sarah encourages him to go hang out with John Paul for a couple of hours. He makes some excuse about wanting to finish a computer game. He kisses her goodbye.

Craig’s in a bad mood when John Paul turns up, he found out Jacqui has gone into hospital and is worried about her. They kiss on the cheek, then on the lips.

Sarah calls Craig but he doesn’t answer, they keep playing “bowl the soft toy bunny at the frying pan”. They joke around fighting over the bunny and head up into the bedroom, tackling each other trying to get the bunny.

Jake comes home early because he didn’t like the movie, Nancy is still in the theatre. He’s surprised Craig left Sarah like that and heads over to tell him off. The door’s open so he wanders upstairs, looking for them…

He opens the door and has a go at Craig for deserting Sarah and how she was practically in tears. Craig lies about playing some internet game and will go and apologise to her.

Jacqui and Tony

Tony asks Jacqui if she wants to go to the hospital to do an operation if she hadn’t miscarried naturally by the weekend. Jacqui says she still has morning sickness and it’s all weird. Jacqui says she can handle it, Tony says he’s been here before and can be there for her. He doesn’t want to pretend everything’s normal.

Jacqui goes over to her mum’s who asks if it’s “still in there”. Jacqui tells her mum she’s glad Tony has gone to work, he’s already lost a kid and she was keeping up an act around him and doesn’t want to give him false hope: she’s still convinced everything’s ok because she was sick twice that morning and her boobs still hurt. Jacqui thinks the doctors made a mistake and she’s still pregnant. Her mum’s not convinced.

Jacqui surfs the net, finding stories of people who were told their baby was dead but it was a mistake. Myra tries to talk to her but Jacqui won’t have any of it and tells her to go and be negative at someone else. Her mum calls Tony and asks him to come home.

Tony comes home and tells her the baby is dead. She bursts into tears and runs out. She desperately wants them to have kids, Tony says they can try again when the time is right. Tony says it’s awful and hurtful but it will get easier. They both cry as she realises the baby has been lost. She tells him she’s sorry but Tony says there’s nothing to be sorry about.

Jacqui doesn’t want to wait to miscarry naturally, so they take her to the hospital. Jacqui jokes about wanting to have more than 10 kids with Tony.

Jacqui goes in for her D&C operation.

Tony worries about Jacqui tomorrow, how everyone won’t understand the big gaping hole in her life. Myra thinks she’ll be ok, because she’s got Tony who knows what it’s like and is glad she’s there for her and thinks he’s a good man.

A tearful Myra admits to Tony she had a miscarriage before she had Jacqui when she was really young and thinks about it every day.

There’s been some sort of complication in the normally-routine surgery….

Melissa and Hannah

Melissa is impressed she fits into her dress, she hasn’t eaten for a week to get into it! Hannah’s worried about her exam results.

Gilly comes in and is surprised to see Melissa there, since she was banned from the house. Melissa says no-one will know unless he wants people to think he’s a filthy perv. Gilly tells Hannah she’s like his little sister and asks if she’d really say those things. Hannah says she would, so he better keep his mouth shut! Gilly’s hurt.

Jess teases Melissa about being so skinny she could blow away with the litter.

Jessica and Zak

Jess finds Adam Clarke’s business card in her wallet.

Jess thinks Adam’s idea might be right for her. Zak and Jess shoot baskets, and she notices his new aftershave.

Tony and Jacqui

Tony comes back from a run to find Dominic there with some croissants. He asks why Jacqui is back at her mum’s and says Tina is worried about her because she won’t talk to anyone. Tony admits they had words, her joke of a marriage and their farce of a relationship. The whole thing is starting to do Tony’s head in, he loves her but wants to salvage what’s left of his dignity and self-respect. Dominic wonders if that means he’s breaking up with her.

Dominic then goes and sees Jacqui, who says he practically threw her out. She thinks he still hasn’t gotten over Mandy, because she’s so perfect. She tells him about the 12 week scan she’s going to shortly and feels Tony keeps letting her down by not coming along.

Dominic hassles Tony about going to the 12 week scan. He didn’t forget, but doesn’t want to go after seeing everyone pat Alek on the back. Dominic asks him about Mandy. Tony assures him he’s over Mandy and he does love Jacqui but things are so hard. He admits he’s scared. Dominic tells him that Jacqui needs him.

Tony turns up just in time for Jacqui’s scan. They apologise to each other.

There’s bad news at the scan: they can’t find a heartbeat. Jacqui has had a missed miscarriage.

Justin gets a job at MOBS

Justin goes and asks OB for a job at MOBS, but doesn’t want to give him anything. He bumps into Claire who says in a couple of weeks Warren will be out of their lives forever and offers him his old job back at the club back. He doesn’t think it’s such a good idea. She snarkily remarks that she’s sure there’s lots of jobs for stroppy teenagers with no qualifications.

Justin then asks Tony if he needs any more staff. Tony says now isn’t a good time.

Justin asks OB again for a job – he can’t promise much, just mucking in.

OB and Clare

Claire teases Justin about his new job but OB stands up for him and tells her to leave before he says something he regrets.

As he’s leaving, Justin finds Clare’s purse on the ground. OB offers to take it back to her.

OB follows her into her place and tells her he has her purse. He wants a pint of beer first as a reward. OB says she must think about dying because she carries a donor card, especially after her recent close call. He asks if the person who tried to kill her might try it again. Clare says he’s behind bars and will be for a long time. He warns her to watch who he upsets then tells her to be careful about leaving her door open.

Hannah and Melissa

Hannah tells Melissa that she hasn’t had her period in ages and she hasn’t slept with anybody. Melissa thinks it’s just because she hasn’t eaten much and her body’s changing. She admits she hasn’t had one in ages and thinks they’re totally gross anyways. Melissa complains about Hannah sniffing all the time so they go into the shop to get some tissues and water. Gilly tries to give Hannah some food but she’s not interested. He asks if she’s ok, she says it’s just a cold. He says he’s just worried about her and she’s becoming all skin and bones and doesn’t look well.

Hannah tells Melissa she’s got stomach pains and is starving. Melissa just tells her to drink water. Hannah apologises for being such a wimp and wonders if it’s all worthwhile since everyone is hassling her. Hannah wants to stay with her. Melissa says she just has to ignore people and deal with it. She bursts into tears and Melissa hugs her – Gilly sees them from a distance.

Back home, Gilly asks to talk to Hannah alone. He asked what happened to the little girl she used to know and thinks the showbiz talk is making her crazy. He says he’s her mate and doesn’t want her to go down the drug route, he’s seen what it can do to people. Hannah tells him to get off her case.

Melissa tells Gilly that Hannah is ok and there’s no need to worry. He doesn’t like all their secrets. Melissa thinks Gilly is jealous of their friendship and says Hannah isn’t interested in him at all. Gilly calls her a sick cow, he’s known her since she was a little kid.

Hannah tells Gilly there’s no need to tell her mum anything. Gilly says he’s only looking out for her. Hannah says if he tells on her, she’ll tell people that he touched her up!

Jess and Gilly

Jess is too embarrassed to go into the shop to be served by Gilly so makes Zak go in – but it’s too late, Gilly is outside anyways. Awkward moment! Inside, Gilly jokes that he could have decked him over getting him to call Jess’ line. He’s worried Jess thinks he’s a right desperado. Zak just thinks it’s funny.

Adam and Jess

Adam turns up to see Jess when she has a face mask on! He gives her an envelope with 120 pounds in it, and an envelope with 5 pounds in it to Zak. Adam says Zak doesn’t have what he’s looking for, but Jess has the gift of the gab and really has something. He gives her his card, he’s working on something new and thinks she could make some serious money. He asks her to call him about it.

She wonders about the offer since she’s up to her eyes in debt. Zak just thinks he’s a sleaze bag.
