She demands he leaves her alone but he refuses. Let into the flat, Jenny accuses Liz of chasing Johnny and being a washed-up slapper. Eileen has to intervene when Liz makes a go for her.

Carla threatens to step in if he can't control the situation. Leanne wakes up from a sleep, puzzled why Nick is there and she asks him to leave after he abandoned her previously. Toyah is pleased.

Leanne is surprised to hear that Nick kept an overnight vigil over her bed. Peter tries to come down hard on Vicky but she turns the tables and shows him how little work Sinead is doing.
