Jay asks if Dexter’s going to tell Abi but Dexter’s more concerned with the missing £10,000. Lola is unsympathetic when Peter admits he didn’t tell Gaz’s parents the whole story. Dexter discovers no other caravans have been burgled. Cindy brings up her Kitty theory and Lola suggests Bob could have done it. Peter proposes the boys confront Bob; Cindy suggests holding Kitty to ransom; Abi proposes an alternate plan: Lola, Dexter and Peter go to the pub, claim the others have gone home and use Kitty’s phone to summon Bob. Bob arrives and they demand the £10,000 back, he denies stealing it and threatens to call Phil. Peter and Dexter front up to Bob but they teens all flee at the last minute. When the gang arrive back in the Square, a livid Phil’s waiting – he’s spoken to Bob. Phil threatens Dexter with a wrench; he wants the car fixed and his money back. Abi explains to Jay why she doesn’t want to have kids young, she wants to be nothing like her mum and dad. Jay holds her, feeling guilty. Meanwhile, at the Beales’, Cindy pulls a package out of her rucksack and smiles - it’s the missing £10,000.

Jean’s thrilled when Ollie comes to see her – he’s researched living with bipolar and still wants to be with her, they could have something really special.

Billy tries to track down Tara and finally bumps into her at the cafe. She claims she has to go to Scotland for work but suggests lunch but he pulls her up on the Scotland story, there was no need to lie, it’s cruel.
