Pip and Toby discuss Rosie’s imminent start at primary school. Rosie’s looking forward to it, it’s Pip who’ll be in bits. Ben turns up and Pip comments that he’s in a good mood; it must be because Beth’s back on the scene. Ben thinks school will be good for Rosie – she’ll learn how to have a ‘healthy lifestyle’. When Pip questions this, Ben clumsily says that he’s pretty sure that, medically speaking, Rosie’s a bit overweight. Pip and Toby think Ben’s out of order. Furious Pip tells Ben she doesn’t want him babysitting for Rosie again and asks him to leave. But it gets Pip thinking and she worries to Toby about Rosie’s diet and exercise. They eventually agree that Ben’s being over the top. It’s Brad’s first day of a summer job, haymaking at Grange Farm. When he worries whether he’ll be any good at it, Tracy says it’s got to be better than slaving away in the chicken factory. Eddie shows Brad the ropes, but Brad’s alarmed when he mentions Oliver will be there. Initially distant, Brad warms up when he and Oliver get chatting about family life and Brad admits he’s enjoying the work. Eddie asks Oliver how he’s doing. Oliver says he’s bearing up, explaining to Brad that five years ago today he lost Caroline and will always miss her. When Tracy rings to see how it’s all going, Brad doesn’t mention that he’s working with Oliver and says it’s going fine. Tracy’s proud of him.
