The client tells Gary that he will be taking his business elsewhere, resulting in an angry Gary firing Seb on the spot.
Seb is heartbroken and desperate, offering Sarah a shocking ultimatum.
At the twins’ hearing, Seb resorts to lying as he claims that he’s got a full time job and that Eileen is backing him.
However Abi reveals the truth and says that, while it breaks her heart, the twins should remain with their foster parents as Seb is lying about his situation.
Afterwards, Seb feels betrayed by everyone and lashes out at Gary for sacking him when he needed the job the most.
He then reveals that Sarah spent the night at Adam’s – how will Gary react?

Evelyn, played by Maureen Lipman, notices that something is wrong.
When she gets ready to leave for her holiday with James, Tyrone tells James that she abandoned him as a baby, not his mum.
Evelyn realises that she has little choice but to tell Tyrone the truth about when really happened.

Evelyn insists that she is so sorry about what happened and that she never stopped thinking about him.
