Series 2, Episode 5 - Mum's The Word

Sarah can't help thinking that Richard is making a mistake marrying Ava. Meanwhile, pal Chloe tos and fros about whether or not to keep the baby.

Further details

It turns out that Sarah still has feelings for Richard and that, though a nice guy, Jason just isn't that guy. The budding writer can't help thinking that Richard is making a mistake marrying Ava - lovely as she is - although that doesn't stop her suggesting the pair hold their reception at Cyril's.

And while we're on the subject of weddings, Stan could pull the plug on his proposal altogether after some surprising news comes to light. Plus, Chloe tos and fros about whether to keep the baby, and mood-lightening Mare proves you're never too old to get down with the kids by speaking 'street'.
