Pam clocks Les’ cold mood and assumes it’s due to Jay working at the funeral parlour- she assures him that he’ll be an asset. Locked in the bathroom, Babe transfers a thousand pounds over to her savings account. Pam’s shocked when Donna claims that Jay was grooming Star; she should get rid of him from Cokers’.

Babe overhears Les trying to flog Mick the Cokers’ new monthly ‘funeral club’. Babe smugly claims that she’s sorted but will spread the word.
Les returns to find that Pam has checked the accounts – she questions who he paid a thousand pounds to the previous night. Les admits that he’s being blackmailed – he got an anonymous email asking for money. The blackmailer had a photo of Les dressed as Christine and demanded a thousand pounds up front, followed by 250 pounds a week from now on. After Les shows Pam the email, Pam claims she thinks she knows who could have done such a thing. A flustered Pam tracks down Donna and asks where Claudette is.

Back at the funeral parlour, Jay’s floored when an upset Pam tells him that their business isn’t a charity – they’re going to have to let him go. Claudette meets Donna in the park who fills her in that Pam’s been on the warpath looking for her – Claudette claims she’s done nothing. Claudette tries to convince Donna she’s changed, but Donna’s firm that she hasn’t forgiven her. Les suggests to Pam that they put on a united front and refuse to pay the blackmailer, but Pam is adamant that if people find out about Christine, it’ll destroy them...

Glenda’s adamant that it has nothing to do with drugs. Ronnie tells Jack that she knows Roxy is in huge trouble – Jack agrees to be supportive. Ronnie finds Glenda playing with Matthew and is disbelieving when Glenda claims that she’s here for Ronnie, Roxy and the children. Ronnie’s honest – she can’t trust that Glenda won’t walk out on Matthew and Amy like she walked out on Ronnie and Roxy; Glenda claims she’ll earn her trust. Ronnie leaves Glenda with Matthew again as she heads off to visit an old friend of Roxy’s. There’s a knock at the door – Glenda answers it to a terrifying looking thug, looking for Roxy.
