Celestine moves into Albert Square with his family. The market stall holders stage a protest, whilst Sharon visits her birth mother in hospital.

Sharon rushes to the hospital in a taxi to see Carol. Simon heads to Number 45 to inform Michelle of what is happening. Sharon arrives at the hospital and heads into the post natal unit, where she finds Carol holding her new-born.

Celestine arrives on the Square with the rest of the family - his wife, Etta, his children, Clyde, Lloyd and Hattie and his father, Jules. They move their belongings into Number 27 as Dot spies on them from her house.

Carol is initially hostile towards Sharon but eventually asks her some questions. Sharon asks about her father. Ron shows up and is unhappy to see Sharon. Sharon decides to leave the hospital shortly after with Michelle.

Pete and the market stallholders all unite to protest against the diggers coming in and destroying the market. They make a plan to block the front of Bridge Street, where the diggers will be coming through, with Pete's stall.

Clyde and Jules have their first drink at the Vic. Celestine and Etta bless the house with the pastor and gospel singers. Residents on the Square hear the singing from outside and wonder what is going on. Michelle asks Jules if everything is okay, when he tells her what is going on. Dot's curiosity about her neighbours is piqued.

Sharon visits Simon and gives him an early birthday present - a lighter with an engraving in it. Simon feels he cannot take it.

The diggers arrive on the Square to tear down the market. Arthur, Grant, Kathy, Pete, Phil and the rest of the stallholders unite at the blocked entrance. The driver warns them he has a job to do and drives the digger towards them. Most of the stallholders move, but Pete stands his ground. Arthur pushes Pete out the way as the digger destroys Pete's stall.
