Liz is shocked but supportive of Amy. She encourages her to be brave and tell her parents, suggesting that their reactions might not be what she expects. Amy is afraid they'll think she's a slut or, worse, they'll try and make her have the baby. Sinead becomes scared to touch Bertie. Daniel tells her he needs his mum. Sarah and Gary find out they're being turfed out of their bedroom and have to sleep on lilos in the front room. Sally winds Tim up during Abi's fake interview with her nitpicking. Abi demonstrates her people skills by stopping a marital argument before it starts. Roy suddenly returns while Carla is giving his description to the police. Audrey offers to hire Gary to fix the dry rot if the price is right. Steve and Tracy are still processing the bombshell when Liz brings Amy home to tell them her secret. Steve produces the pregnancy test and goes ballistic, demanding to know who the father is. Putting two and two together, he decides that Aadi is probably the father and marches off to confront him, grabbing a spade from Geoff who is gardening outside No.4. Tracy goes after him when Amy swears that it's not Aadi. Steve brandishes the spade in the shop and accuses Aadi of having sex with Amy. Aadi denies the charge and Dev and Tracy manage to calm him down. Roy tells Carla he was out trainspotting as he wanted to be alone. He apologises for worrying her. Carla passes on Sylvia's message. Sarah and Gary are arguing about their living conditions when Nicola and Zack arrive to see Eileen. Amy takes Steve to task for flying off the handle; he's let Asha know, which means the whole school will be talking about her. Steve blames it on shock and insists that she tells them the identity of the father. Tracy backs him up. Amy denies that she was forced into it and says she doesn't know who it is. Sinead and Daniel are thrilled by the news that Bertie's blood tests and X-rays are clear. A comment by Daniel makes Sinead dwell on the fact that her son might never remember her. Gary is cheered up by Nicola's arrival, much to Sarah's fury. Amy hides in her room to escape the barrage of questions about the father. Tracy is upset that Amy went to Liz first rather than her and promises to do right by her daughter.
