Kal's mother, Yasmeen, has arrived at V Court Fitness to size up Leanne but she isn't there. Max is playing up and driving Kylie mad. Carla puts her car into Websters' Auto Centre for repairs and ignores Luke's attempts to flirt with her. Leanne asks Kal to leave off introducing her to his mother as things are too up in the air with Nick. Steve confirms to David that Michael has lost his job opportunity. Kal pushes Leanne into agreeing to meeting his mother and son, Zeedan, at 6.00pm. A drunk Peter tries to talk to Carla but as Luke watches she gives him the brush-off. Lloyd frets when he can't contact Andrea. Although Zeedan cries off, the rest of the Nazirs arrive at the flat. Yasmeen questions Leanne on her family background which she suggests is "fractured". Andrea’s husband Neil tells her he’s postponed his return to Nigeria so they can spend more time together and suggests they visit their daughter Jessica in Liverpool. Andrea makes her excuses and leaves him alone. Nick lets slip that he knows where Michael lives and Gail becomes suspicious. Steve shows Michelle the retro 1960s camper van he’s bought for their new business venture. She approves. Andrea catches Lloyd before he goes on his holiday to wish him well and tell him she loves him. Luke insists on walking Carla to her flat as a jealous Peter watches. Gail goes to see Michael and she finds out what happened. She tells him to go and explain everything to Steve and she will deal with her sons. The Nazirs' visit has gone well but on the street outside Nick breaks the news to Leanne that he's closing the bistro and reveals her sordid past as a prostitute to the assembled family.
