Part One: Ronnie introduces Kat to Ed as his business partner, the pair never having met before. Grace uses the office phone to call Ronnie for help after her own phone dies on her. Debbie attempts to wipe the stain off the dress. Abi "helps" by throwing a glass of Prosecco over it, which only makes matters worse. The Baileys rush to the hospital. Grace angrily thrusts her shopping receipt at the security guard when he has the nerve to visit her to apologise. Ronnie accuses the man of racial profiling. Cathy decides she'd like to help Steve with his fundraising efforts. The doctors are unable to stop Grace's contractions so she has to have the baby ten weeks early. Tyrone lets Alina work on her car with him. Michael is furious with Ronnie for letting Grace down and calls him a waste of time. Nick takes Simon and Sam out for a meal at Speed Daal. The boys agree to put what happened with Jacob behind them. Ed is surprised by how emotional Ronnie is at the day's events.
Part Two: Unable to stand the secrecy any longer, Ronnie admits that he cheated on his wife Ruth with Aggie 31 years ago, before she'd met Ed. He admits that he suspects Michael is his son and that, having missed out on being a father, he needs to know the truth so that he can be a granddad. Rocked by his brother's revelations, Ed tells him to stay away from him. Abi takes the dress situation more seriously when Debbie tells her that the frock cost £5,000. Cathy pitches her fundraising ideas to Tracy, including a barn dance. Tracy says she'd rather stick pins in her eyes and tells her to donate to the crowdfunder if she wants to help. Fiz makes an appointment with Adam to put her and Tyrone's affairs in order. Debbie discovers that the dress was a sample and comes at no charge. She and Abi make up as they see the funny side. Ed makes a video call to Aggie asking her if what Ronnie said was true. She admits that she was with Ronnie for a while but insists that Michael is his. Grace gives birth to a girl.
