When Natasha has Braxton Hicks contractions, Tom worries the babies are on their way. Natasha reassures him; she’s sure the babies will be born on Friday as planned. Helen mentions to Adam that their new marketing strategy on the website seems to have been successful; telling the truth clearly works. Adam talks about the WI pizza tasting at the Village Hall tomorrow – he and Ian have been practising all weekend. Tom tells them that Natasha’s anxiety levels about the babies have sky-rocketed and wonders if it was something Clarrie said. Helen admires Clarrie’s knitted cardies for the babies, but Natasha scoffs at the pink and blue. She thought the world had moved on from gender distinctions, and her boy will be wearing the pink one. Natasha thinks Tom’s terrified something will go wrong with the twins because of what happened with Wren. And she’s scared - when the babies arrive she can’t imagine how she’s going to cope. Her mum’s visiting in a couple of weeks, but she wishes she was here now. Jazzer finds Tracy crying and feeling guilty about Brad. It’s heartbreaking that she can’t scrape enough cash together for his summer school expenses. All she can do is put in a good word for him at the chicken factory – but she won’t do that because it’s a hell hole. Gemma, her supervisor, has got it in for her. Tracy makes Jazzer promise not to tell anyone. She can’t afford to leave, but what she can do is make sure Brad never sets foot in the chicken factory.
