While Stella looks like the cat that got the cream following her night with Sean, Emma hears a worrying rumour about Sunil. Luke has something on his mind too.

Further details

Stella certainly looks like the cat that got the cream following her night with Sean. She can't keep her hands off the younger man either: "Oh my God, I'm 42 and I'm snogging in the street," she says.

As Stella enjoys the early days of her romance, things aren't running so smoothly for daughter Emma. When rumours spread that Sunil is cheating on the pregnant teenager with an older woman, Emma throws him out and declares their relationship to be finished. The family want to give Sunil the benefit of the doubt, but when Luke spots his brother-in-law-to-be with another girl, Stella undertakes a reconnaissance mission to find out exactly what he's up to...

Meanwhile, Luke is troubled. Destroying the letter he received from his estranged father, he toys with the possibility of making contact with the man who walked out on him before he was even born. Plus, when a date is set for Dai's benefit fraud trial, he and Paula come up with a novel way to prepare for the court appearance.
