Back To Life. Miranda (Daisy Haggard). Copyright: Two Brothers Pictures
Knowing she must go to the police, Miri's final day with Billy is interrupted by his domineering mother.

Further details

With John's body discovered, no sign of her digital pet and no word from Mandy, Miri realises that she has to go to the police before they come to her. This is probably her last morning of freedom and she wants to spend it with Billy. They will have fun together. Even if an unexpected family member comes along for the ride...

Oscar and Caroline are united after their strange night with Dom, and they set off on a litter picking mission for "Make Hythe Clean". But will Caroline's love for Oscar trump her fear of humiliation and ridicule, and allow her the freedom to be herself? Meanwhile, Norah leaves a surprise behind for Miri before beating her to the police station, where Tina is investigating John's murder.
