Tricky Dicky has a bad cold. Grant is nastier than usual when Pauline asks to see Sharon. Michelle is visited by Vicki's kidnapper Audrey Whittingham, who tries to explain why she did it. She says she will never forgive her. Gita is rushed to Walford General Hospital, and she gives birth to a baby girl Sharmilla.

Sharon has not returned to see Michelle since the previous evening. Michelle worries that Sharon is fed up with her. Pauline phones the Vic to find out where Sharon is but Grant picks up and claims she is busy.

Sanjay leaves Gita in Tricky Dicky's care, but Gita gets the feeling he does not like her.

Pauline heads over to the Vic to try and talk to Sharon but Grant intercepts and keeps her out. She heads back to Number 55 and tells Michelle to go out and buy Vicki a toy from the market.

Gita walks out the flat when Tricky Dicky upsets her.

Michelle becomes paranoid when she thinks she sees Audrey in the market.

Gita heads to the café.

Clyde supports Michelle, as does Mark when she returns home.

Tricky Dicky finds Gita at the café and begs her to go back to the flat. She agrees, but when Ian makes a remark, Tricky Dicky tells him that Cindy is no longer around because of Kathy's intervention. Ian confronts Kathy about her meddling.

Audrey shows up at Number 55 to see Michelle. Michelle is speechless and demands an explanation from her.

Tricky Dicky gets Gita back to the flat, where her waters then break. He rushes her into his car and they head to the hospital.

Audrey tells Michelle that her daughter was taken from her at birth, one of her son's died in a car crash, and her husband had a stroke and died too. She kidnapped Vicki as a substitute for the little girl she never had the chance to mother. Michelle fails to sympathise with her and wants to kill her. Pauline takes Audrey out of the room and asks her to leave to allow Michelle to calm down.

Gita gives birth and Sanjay later arrives to be with her.

Michelle finally accepts that what happened to Vicki has happened and she has to move on. She then cries into Pauline's arms.
