Abi is growing increasingly resentful over Lauren’s close relationship with Max. The final straw comes when Jack and Lauren both work together to give Max a surprise, prompting Abi to storm off as it scuppers her plans for Father’s Day.
Later, Abi gets her revenge by telling Steven about Lauren’s secret abortion.
Meanwhile, Ian struggles to celebrate Father’s Day, despite Steven attempting to make a kind gesture by presenting him with a canvas portrait of them both. Steven is left feeling rejected following Ian’s behaviour – while some mistaken assumptions from Ted make matters worse.
Elsewhere, Sharon tries to find out what really happened with Louise.
Also today, Lily finds out about Stacey’s pregnancy and accidentally lets the news slip.
Finally, Ted and Joyce’s daughter Judith cancels plans to pay a visit, while Denise shows her appreciation for Patrick on Father’s Day.
