Plot

Todd isn't pleased when he gets up and finds that Will has spent the night on the sofa at Summer's invitation. Todd tries to make him feel guilty for what happened to Paul but fails. Having spent the night in the cells sobering up, Paul is questioned. He has no alibi as he was drinking on the Red Rec at the time of the theft of the heat pump. Chris Golding's article is published in the Gazette. Fiz has no regrets. Brian panics when he thinks he's wanted to be in the naked calendar and locks himself in The Kabin to avoid being contacted. Paul is released without charge. George is off with Eileen when she jokes with him, still blaming Todd for yesterday's debacle. Sean counsels him that that's her way of leading up to an apology. Emma wants to takes things further with Curtis but he's distracted when James agrees to be in the calendar and he realises he has thirteen models. Natasha asks if Sam can stay the night with Nick. He's thrilled and Leanne's pleased to see him so happy. Kirk and Sean easily recognise Fiz's situation from the Gazette article. Paul suspects Will and Todd for landing him in trouble with the police and earns a harsh rebuke from an upset Summer for lashing out at people. Having read the article an angry Alina confronts Fiz, pointing out that she never set out to steal Tyrone from her but Fiz is unrepentant. Curtis asks Chesney to drop out of the calendar. He's relieved to do so. Curtis asks him for dating advice about Emma, unsure whether she likes him. George calls at No.11 and explains to Mary that he owes Eileen an apology. She's pleased to help him out with advice. Alina tells Tyrone to sort Fiz out as she's making them look like fools. Nick buys in loads of things for the sleepover. Will rings Paul, saying to meet him in half an hour when he'll tell him everything but Todd overhears and confronts him. Tyrone calls at the furniture shop and confronts Fiz over the article. A customer, Phill Whittaker, overhears their argument. Will tells Todd he wants out to save Summer further upset, but Todd has his lighter in his possession and threatens to leave it in the builder's yard to point the police in his direction. Phill introduces himself to Fiz and enquires after a wardrobe. Natasha calls at Nick's flat and tells him that there's been a change of plan and Sam won’t be coming to stay after all. She's sorry when sees how much effort he's put into the visit. Will meets Paul as arranged. As Todd listens in, Will refuses to give any information and won't point the finger of blame at Todd. He warns him that his aggressive behaviour is pushing Summer away. Leanne is sympathetic to Nick's disappointment. David offers Paul a job at the barbers. George surprises Eileen with a candlelit meal by way of an apology. A relieved Brian agrees to take the photos for the charity calendar. An upset Gemma confronts Curtis for dropping Chesney. Emma solves the problem by suggesting he double up with Kirk on one of the shots. At Alina's suggestion, Tyrone approaches Daniel hoping that he'll write an article telling their side of the story. Daniel refuses, pointing to him that he and Alina are not viewed by everyone as the victims in the story. Keeping £1,000 for himself, Todd hands over Will's money and gets his engagement ring back. Todd doesn't see the lad set his mobile on record as he prompts him into a conversation about him splitting up Billy and Paul, and stealing the heat pump. Eileen is disappointed when George says he has a special request for her, only for him to ask for casual help at the undertakers. Emma and Curtis happily agree that they'd like to take their relationship to the next level. Fiz is flattered when Phill asks her out for a drink. Todd tells Billy and Summer he's been saving hard and he's going to spend the money on a family holiday for the three of them. In Victoria Gardens, Will watches the footage he recorded, smiling.
