When Manchester experiences an earth tremor, Monica's waters break and she goes into labour.

Further details

On the other side of Chatsworth, the same tremor knocks Frank off his barstool and puts him in a coma. Monica's refusing to have the baby unless Frank is present, but how long can she keep her bun in the oven? While he's out cold in his hospital bed, Frank experiences an alternative world: a life where he is a success, where Ian isn't gay and Debbie looks like she'll never leave home.
