Kirsty offers to feed Ruby but Tyrone tells her to stay away from the baby as he doesn't trust her. Kirsty's shocked. Ken tells Brian that he wants to resign from the board of governors as Wendy cost him his marriage and he doesn't want to cause Deirdre any further pain. Brian's disappointed and tries but fails to get him to change his mind. Tyrone takes Ruby to the garage and tells Kevin that he needs another week off to look after his daughter. Kevin's bemused. As Tyrone heads home, he spots Kirsty's mother Alison at the bus stop. Alison's thrilled to meet Ruby and apologises for not getting in touch before. Lloyd books a physiotherapy appointment with Jenna under a false name. Jenna's furious to discover that her next patient is Lloyd. Begrudgingly she agrees to meet up with him for a proper chat.

Kirsty has no option but to agree and Alison's grateful. Tracy and Michelle have hair appointments at the same time. Kylie successfully winds them up by enquiring about Tracy's relationship with Michelle's son. Soon Tracy and Michelle are rowing and a fight ensues which spills out onto the street. Michelle tells Tracy that she's no longer welcome at the flat and tells Ryan that if he doesn't like it he can leave. Brian dupes Ken and Wendy into a meeting in his office. Wendy implores Ken not to give up his chair and insists they can work together without difficulty. Ken's unsure. As Alison moves her things into No.9 there's a hammering on the door. With horror, Kirsty realises it's her dad, Ed. Tyrone bundles Alison into the back yard and lets Ed in. In a rage, he searches the house for Alison.
