Freddie charges Chelsea with looking after a new member of the Orangery serving team. He thinks she might find they have things in common. Chelsea’s horrified when she later discovers the new recruit is her brother Brad. Chelsea reckons she can’t train Brad, he’s hopeless. Freddie asserts that while he understands it’s hard for her to work with her brother, she can’t pick and choose, and reminds her of her own shaky early days at the Orangery. Chelsea’s impatient with Brad but puts on a good front to Freddie. Oblivious Freddie declares he knew Chelsea would be the best person to show Brad the ropes. Privately Chelsea hisses to Brad that she doesn’t want him showing her up. She’s worked hard to get to this point, so while they’re at work, they’re not related. Freddie offers to put tickets aside for Russ to his upcoming 90s DJ night. He asks Russ to cast his expert eye over the proposed playlist, which Russ is delighted to do. Fussy Tom helps Natasha get the twins over the April Cottage threshold, but before they can make it Natasha’s mum emerges to greet them. Caitlin’s happy to take over from here. Later with the new parents frantically juggling babies, and Tom finding it hard to settle wailing Nova, Natasha reckons they should call on their mums' help. Sure enough Caitlin and Natasha are soon happily singing a lullaby to the sleeping babies. Realising he’s surplus to requirements, Tom sets about posting an announcement of the twins’ arrival on their business website.
