The Dingles are in uproar when Charity states that she wants her baby adopted.
Charity (Emma Atkins) gazes into the incubator looking at her new-born son, realising that it is a miracle he survived the caesarean. Zak (Steve Halliwell) is convinced the baby is a Dingle, since despite weighing just over two pounds he appears to be a fighter.
Charity is quick to remind her family that her son could actually be a Tate. Although the Dingles refuse to believe this is the case, Charity delivers a further blow by insisting on having the baby adopted as soon as it is well enough.
Debbie (Charley Webb) struggles to accept her mother’s decision and offers to care for the baby herself. Charity brushes it off as an absurd idea, reminding her that the baby’s start in life would be far from secure with his mother serving a life sentence in prison.
Resigning herself to the fact that she will have to say goodbye to her new-born brother in the near future, Debbie can’t help but feel devastated.
Elsewhere in the village, with the council tender to collect refuse in the area up for grabs, Jimmy (Nick Miles) is determined to steal the contract from the Tates. Little does Zoe (Leah Bracknell) know that she has a spy in her midst as she places her trust in Carl (Tom Lister).
Meanwhile, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) is staying firmly behind closed doors since her allergy to shellfish has left her covered in red blotches. Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) is frustrated when the dizzy cleaner won’t tell Ashley (John Middleton) the truth about her sharp exit the night before and is refusing to come out of the house.
Nicola puts an end to her friend’s seclusion by sending Ashley round with a bottle of calamine lotion, much to Laurel’s embarrassment.
