Further details

Al gets a surprise visit from Sean, a boy with a transitioning parent and a troubled past. Ever-competitive Nitin can't get over Martin being Mimi's mentor.

Denise's brother Dennis visits and takes a shine to Rose, much to Denise's fury.

At the supermarket, Nitin bumps into Zak, the litigious snob whose wife has now left him - drunk in charge of the baby.

And Ingrid is excited about her 14 year-old foster son Limahl; it's not a problem that he stubbed out his cigarette in his 'Welcome' cake.
