Stella accidentally shuts Michael's hand in his car bonnet - thankfully the pair are still being pally at this point. Something is bound to happen between them, though, with Stella's raging hormones just about being kept at bay by a 50 Shades of Grey-style erotic novel.

Later on, a girls' night out to the local nightclub to see TV presenter and one-time X Factor star Rylan (and his impossibly big, impossibly white veneers) spells trouble for young Emma when she continues to cross the line with the very married Marcus.

On a brighter note, Big Alan asks Celia out for dinner, and Luke has a big question for Zoe.
