It's the day of the Sports Relief challenges and everyone's excited. Rob asks Ian why he's been so prickly, claiming he was just trying to help. Ian blurts out his feelings about Rob's relationship with Helen and his comments about The Lodge.

David tells Jill he's really pleased about the baby. Ruth seems less enthusiastic but Jill thinks it'll just take time. While watching David compete, Ruth's hit by how lucky she is.

Everyone's thrilled to see the special celebrity guest... Sir Bradley Wiggins. None more so that Lynda, who tumbles from her bike as she realises who it is.

In the Rough and Tumble, Ian's doing better than Rob expected. Rob gives Ian a 'professional nudge'. They climb on to their bikes and Ian crosses the line first. Rob claims he slowed to look at The Lodge - he'll be moving in one day after all. Ian's livid at Rob's arrogance and punches him in front of Sir Bradley. Ian's star-struck when he sees his hero, Wiggo.

At the end of a successful and eventful competition, the two overall winners are announced - Dan and Lynda!

At the Bull, Rob tries to clear the air but Ian's having none of it - Rob's a bully.

Ruth's feeling happy. Having had time to adjust, she can honestly say she wants the baby more than anything.
