Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 2048
AIRED:
Ben spends another day out hanging with Alex and trying to catch up. Having been living in a world where 50% of the population are female, Ben's surprised that his brother hasn't so much as dated one of them and is even more shocked to discover that his brother is a virgin! The boys decide to try chatting up Yasmin and Mel! It doesn't go well - there's a little bit of awkward conversation about shoes, other than that it's all bad news! Jake tells Dave that Olly is a waste of space on the construction job - he doesn't pull his weight at all. The only problem is that they're having this conversation in the cafe and Lucy overhears! Thinking that Jake is having a go at Olly because she chose him other Jake, she tells Jake what's what! Later, Lucy tries to make amends by bringing Jake (and Olly) coffee on the construction site. Meanwhile, Olly subtly interrogates Eileen and overhears the odd conversation about the security measures that will be taken in the pub when Eileen and Pete go out for the evening on Thursday . . . Olly tells Darren his plan and Darren is impressed and agrees to take on the job . . . Kelly is in a state of shock after the verdict on Suzie. Their families gather around Justin and Kelly in support but nothing they say can make the situation any better. The whole thing is made worse when the local paper makes the news of the ruling public. Outraged that the paper would stoop so low, Myra decides to throw away the shop's entire stock while Cat is left with the job of informing Justin and Kelly. In the salon, Yasmin and Mel speculate over the article. Yas doesn't believe that Justin and Kelly would ever harm Suzie but Mel isn't so sure . . . Justin and Kelly consult with a solicitor who tells them that nothing can be done straight away to overturn the ruling but guardianship of Suzie can be handed over to a relative so that things could be kept with in the family. Kelly is happy that Suzie won't be put into care but is still upset that she won't have full time access to her daughter. Later, Sue sets down the ground rules for Justin and Kelly's visits to see Suzie at the Boulter's house: they're not allowed to be left alone with her and they're not to spend more than 4 hours a day with her! Both Justin and Kelly are outraged and Kelly worries that she won't be able to sign Suzie away . . . Soon, Suzie is released from hospital and Denise accompanies Justin and Kelly. Denise soon makes sure that they know that she's going to stick to the rules very carefully so that social services have no right to take Suzie away. At the Boulter's it becomes late but Kelly can't seem to bring herself to leave Suzie but she knows she must and reassured that she can visit at any time she and Justin leave but as they head out of the door, Suzie begins to cry and her parents are forced to walk out of the house and across the street with Suzie's screams filling the night . . .moreless
