Further details

Aidan's bad behaviour has landed him in court, but it's Patty who'll decide the outcome. Threats are made, but money is tight and Frank knows Aidan's worth too much to lose, problem is, Aidan knows it too.

Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Aidan fears that he has delivered a near-fatal portion before returning to his real home. Will he be welcomed with open arms?

Cilla's abduction forces Mimi to face her past, and her family. The Maguire's aren't surprised by Mimi's news, but they won't take her wishes lying down, but Mimi reasserts herself as head of the family.

New flatmates Marty and Mickey are becoming intimate in more ways than one, and Mickey helps Marty do up the flat in time for his special guests. Kelly, however, is admiring more than just the decor, which catches the attention of the wrong flatmate... does her crush feel the same way?
