Monday’s episode will see Janine offer to help Frankie out at the pub and be handed a trial shift. Sharon is then left shocked to see her serving drinks, but Janine seems excited to be back behind the bar. Do we sense a takeover bid is coming?
Gray manipulates Whitney
Whitney believes she’s blown her big chance at singing stardom, but Gray isn’t taking no for answer. Posing as her manager, he manages to convince agent Jen to put Whit on her line-up for the entertainment industry showcase.
But when Jen then goes on to offer Whitney an opportunity on a cruise ship, Gray starts to worry that he’ll lose her, just as she’s beginning to soften towards him. And after his efforts to talk her out of going end in failure, the wicked schemer decides to take matters into his own hands.
Will Keegan and Tiffany reunite?
Keegan will be seen going too far when he tries to help Bernie by confronting Rainie over the rumours that she’s using drugs again. And, as tensions increase, it’s left to Tiffany to step in and defuse the situation.
Realising he went too far, Keegan apologises to Rainie, who agrees to take the drug test. But in the aftermath, Bernie can’t help but notice that Keegan and Tiff still make a good team. Tiffany then admits to Keegan that she and Vinny were only pretending to be a couple – an admission that leads to the two of them deciding to be friends again.
But on Friday, Tiffany receives a letter informing her that Keegan has frozen their joint bank account. And feeling foolish, she decides to drown her sorrows with Whitney, only for the two of them to receive a surprise bottle of champagne at their table. But who is the mystery person buying them drinks?

Harvey discovers that Dana is planning to defer her university application, but she’s adamant that the decision is hers to make.
Believing that she’s making a mistake, Harvey then appeals to Bobby to try and get Dana to change her mind. But his efforts backfire and, by Tuesday, Dana is telling her dad that she’s adamant about putting uni on the back burner for a year.
Sheree is out on her own
Sheree still wants Patrick to go with her to Trinidad, but he seems distracted by a plan to be Isaac and Lola’s guarantor so they can get a flat together.
On Thursday, Isaac then tells his mum that things are looking up as the school has now said that he can start working there again. And as the family holds a housewarming party for Isaac and Lola, we’ll see Sheree looking increasingly isolated. So what decision will she end up making about her future?
