Despite promising signs that Michael was a keeper, Stella is dealt a blow when, in the aftermath of Katie's accident, the well-meaning lawyer decides to do the 'right' thing and get back with Jan. Of course, it couldn't feel more wrong. With a fresh start in Chichester on the cards, will Michael see the error of his ways before it's too late?

A heartbroken Stella has no time to wallow, doing her best to keep it together for Luke and Zoe's wedding. Before that, though, are the stag and hens dos, and, taking care of catering, Verv has baked some very special cakes for the ladies.

A familiar face stops by, too, when Stella's ex Karl returns from Abu Dhabi, and he's none-toopleased about Emma's shenanigans with Marcus, leading the youngster to make a difficult decision.
