Nina checks that Zara isn’t put out by her inviting Michelle and Zara insists she’ll be ok.


Rob reminds Liv about Ruhma coming over for dinner and Liv says she’s going to a friend called Amber’s to do homework but says she’ll be back for curry. Ruhma arrives and tries to give Rob cooking tips. They talk about Liv and share stories about their kids and Rob thinks he must be mad agreeing to do it all again.

Luca panics about having to choose a song to sing and Bear says he think he’s found one, upping the pressure on Luca.

Kirsty wants to know what he wants to sing but Luca manages to get out onto his bike before she can ask, only for him to have to come back because he’s got a flat tyre. Kirsty offers him a lift so they can talk song choices. Luca has to come back into The Mill to go to the toilet, and he and Kirsty secretly hear Bear singing beautifully in his office. This delights Kirsty but concerns Luca, how can he compete with that?

Zara looks worried and immediately goes to find Nina.She asks Nina if she has plans or if she has any problems with The Mill.

After hearing Bear sing, Luca tells Kirsty he’s pulling out of singing at the charity auction – there’s no way he can compare to that. Al makes him feel guilty though for letting Kirsty down, so he suggests donating to the auction instead.

Tina Bridges, a university lecturer, is annoyed when she realises that Barry Biglow has not only listened to her private phone call but is intent on giving her unwanted advice.

Sid examines Tina and she opens up about being miserable after a breakup.

Barry and Scarlett bond while chatting about Karen. Tina tries to apologise to Barry, but they end up having another argument. Scarlett and Sid worry about Barry’s bad mood. Sid tries to get Barry to open up, concerned he’s bottling things up.


Word has spread through The Mill about what a fantastic singer Bear is, and though he is nervous, he is enjoying the praise as he heads off to meet Kirsty at the venue.
