Liam is still hanging around Walford trying to annoy Nigel. Pauline starts to worry for Michelle, who is keeping herself locked away at Number 55. Jimmy returns to the Square wanting his car back from Phil. Phil suggests to Jimmy he does not aggravate him.

Pat phones in sick at the Vic to keep focus on Frank. David offers to go down to the Missing Person's Bureau.

Sanjay tells Tricky Dicky that he stood up to Gita when they met yesterday and now the ball is in her court.

Pat starts to question whether Frank really was cheating on her. David claims to have phoned the Missing Person's Bureau and informs Pat he will be sending a photograph of Frank to them via post so that they can keep an eye out for him.

Jules learns that he is being transferred to McEwan estate by the council. Nellie refuses to let her friend leave and insists he will stay at Number 45. Arthur is shocked by Nellie's statement and ends up breaking the news to Jules that he cannot stay with them at Number 45 because there is no room.

Sanjay tries apologising to Cindy for his outburst the other day but she does not forgive easily.

Ricky questions David about the Missing Person's Bureau and learns he never bothered going and only told Pat he would visit them to shut her up.

Nigel feels powerful telling Liam that they are going to get a restraining order against him, but he is quickly crushed when Liam explains he has already spoken to a solicitor and they cannot keep him away.

Phil receives a phone call at the Arches from someone who has broken down and is willing to pay a high price to get it fixed.

Liam questions Bianca on what working for Nigel was like. She claims he would eye her up a lot.

Tension between David and Ricky rises.

Pauline snaps at Nellie when she claims that Arthur has upset her by not letting Jules live with them.

Sanjay turns to Ian for a loan. Ian makes him sweat and enjoys having the power to affect his financial life. Cindy notices Ian revelling in Sanjay's desperation and is uncomfortable.

Mark tries getting Michelle out of the house for a drink but she refuses to go.

An irritated Phil returns empty-handed after discovering the breakdown job was a hoax call. Jimmy later shows up at the Arches and admits it was him who made the hoax call. He then propositions Phil - he gives him his car back and he will never see him again. Phil punches him to the floor, so he tells him he is going to regret his actions.
