Further details

Charles finally gives Bex the chance to take a client out on her own. However, the client is an aging button manufacturer who wants to go to a strip club.

Bex turns to Ryan for support but he has some news of his own - he's met someone else.

He agrees to accompany Bex to the club but he is forced to bring his new girlfriend too.

Chris decides she needs a sports car and who better to help get one at cost than Bex's car dealer father.

Armed with her used car price guide and flirty outfit, she is convinced she's going to get a good deal. However, Jack is immune to such tactics.

When Charles finds out that Bex has been forced to go to a strip club, he sacrifices his own date to make sure she is OK.

Bex is furious and thinks he has come to check up on her - why doesn't he trust her to handle a client?
