Tracy tells Susan she still feels she’s in the doghouse with Oliver; he’s barely spoken to her since he caught her and Jazzer in the hotel room. Tracy can’t risk losing her job especially when Jazzer’s is under threat. She wouldn’t have coped financially the last few months without Jazzer’s help. Susan shares her worry over Chris and Alice’s divorce. When Susan explains she’s worried about overloading Neil who he’s been worrying about Berrow for weeks, Tracy catches her out. Tracy’s only known about the threat to Berrow since Sunday. Tracy’s angry at Susan for not letting her and Jazzer know sooner. Susan’s stung when Tracy discredits her loyalty, saying she’s in cahoots with Brian to only save managerial jobs. Tracy orders her to leave.
Chris is woken by Alice banging on his door. Amy has told Alice about them and is worried that Alice might start drinking again. But when Chris rushes round to Alice’s, she’s calm and sober. When Chris admits he messed up and it shouldn’t have happened, Alice tells him she’s heartbroken and devastated. Chris points out that he’s single and it was Alice that left him. If it was up to him, they’d still be a couple. But Alice won’t take any responsibility for Chris sleeping with Amy and says that she no longer wants to feel guilty. She’ll be in touch with her solicitor; she knows she’s a good person and is going to fight for her daughter.
