You ain't changed your mind then?
We let them think we're going to the court to pay them the money
that we've got, but instead, we go to the police station.
Two grand. You know, it might be enough.
Maybe the courts will take it. I ain't doing "maybe", Mick!
This is no brainer.
Anyway, it'll give me a break from Mad Sylvie and you can give
Konrad his money.
Mother. I just don't know if I can like... Mick!
We are doing it.
Keep this schtum in front of the kids.
I don't want any more aggro.
There you go, thanks.
Don't know ain't good enough, Tina.
Marie's not in till 11.
Kath? Sorry, do you mind? Can I put a couple of these up on your board?
It's about the meeting in the Vic in a couple of weeks.
Yeah, leave it with me, Denise. I'll stick it up when the rush is off, OK?
You've done all that already? Yeah. Well, I've got time on my hands. No point wasting it.
I'll pop over this afternoon and help you with the agenda.
Mind you, I'll have baby Arthur with me.
Oh. He could help with the online stuff.
Probably, he'll be better at it than us!
Yeah, well, the less said about online, the better, at the moment.
Right, there you go. Oh, thanks, Kathy. There you go.
Go straight back home.
And if you think this is a holiday, you can forget it.
I thought you said he was under house arrest.
He is. He's going to have to fend for himself.
I've got baby yoga with Arthur, just on my way to pick him up.
Are you sure?
Might be best to keep your distance for a bit, until things clear up.
This is precious time with my grandson, Kush!
I'm not going to let it be spoiled by some horrible photo!
Look, you've made your point and I get it,
but you've had a night off and I was due at the caf an hour ago.
Well, I've got plans for myself today actually. Shirley!
You're massively overreacting!
Look, whether you like it or not, she's our mum. We have a duty.
Well, I'm doing my duty, all right?
To someone that deserves it. And it's long overdue.
What does that mean?!
It means I'm finally learning to be a mum!
I think I need to powder my nose. Good luck with that, Teen!
Stacey took Arthur out. When are they coming back?
She didn't say. But we've got baby yoga.
Stacey knows all about it, Bex. She must have forgot then.
Stacey's on her way round now. She's got Arthur with her.
Maybe we should bin the gardens today.
Ian's got the GP for his results and you know how worked up he gets.
Look, there's no point putting us both through it, OK?
It's not going to change anything.
The fresh air might do you some good.
And to be honest, I do have this report to write.
You would be doing me a favour.
Only if you're sure, love.
Look, I don't even want to think about it until I'm there, OK?
I'll call you. Right. Well, I'll get ready then.
What time's your appointment, Dad? 12.
Look, I don't know how long I'm going to be.
Depends how bad the news is, I guess.
Listen, shall I just drive you? What? Why?
Your ban's been lifted, ain't it?
Well, yeah. I'll be fine.
He said he didn't want a fuss, so just leave him to it.
Oh, we have plans here this lunchtime.
We've got the house to ourselves.
Are you ready?
What do you think? I'll take that as yes then.
I can't actually believe they'd send him to jail.
He ain't got enough money to pay the fine, Whitney.
Ready for the off then, yeah? We'll let you know the
score soon as. Why don't we all come with you?
Show them that you've got a nice family and that.
That's why I'm going.
The court will be lenient, Mick. I know it.
Yeah, it's cheaper on the taxpayer not to bang you up, right?
Exactly. Your dad will be back for dinner, all right?
You be a good girl.
Stacey knows how much Arthur loves baby yoga.
I just don't believe she forgot.
Where's Martin anyway?
Caf. I'll have a quiet word with him when the moment's right.
No, I'll have a quiet word myself right now!
Whoa! Just... Mind the stall.
Um, I think there's been some
sort of mix-up about Mum's gran day with Arthur.
Yeah. Well, something else came up.
Just... Oh, come on. Don't take this whole thing out on Mum.
It ain't fair.
It ain't fair on Carmel? My little daughter's in shreds, mate!
I can't stop, Carmel. Jane's on her own with Louie.
So, leave Arthur with me, then.
I thought you were supposed to be with Jane.
I'm just getting the coffees. You knew I was having Arthur today.
It's not necessarily down to me, Carmel. Cheers, Stace.
You're being seriously petty, mate.
You want to get personal now, do you? Take it elsewhere, will you?
What is wrong with you two? It's actually quite embarrassing and we obviously need to talk
things through, but can we do it in private, please?
Come to our house at lunchtime. Two coffees, please, Kath.
Shakil can look after the stall. The least he can do. He can't.
He needs to stay home and do his schoolwork.
It's an hour, Mum.
Let's...sort this out.
Take a seat, Mr Beale. I'm just getting up to speed.
Sorry, I'm...a bit nervous.
Right. Well, I won't beat around the bush.
Your blood test results put you in the high risk bracket
for type two diabetes.
Oh, Doctor, that's such a relief!
I thought I was a dead man! I thought it was cancer, or something!
Well, I suppose type two diabetes is very manageable, but if
you leave it unchecked, it can lead to blindness, amputation, even coma.
So, I would urge you to take this seriously and make some major
changes in your diet and lifestyle, before it's too late.
Lunch is served.
We have spicy guacamole, with pitta
and chilli chocolate mousse. You did all this for me?
Yeah, I did.
And, well, avocados, chillies and chocolate,
they're all aphrodisiacs, ain't they?
Oh, I thought that was supposed to be champagne and oysters.
Yeah. Well, I don't drink and oysters make me gag.
To wash it all down...
Oh! I'm glad I skipped breakfast!
Yes, please, babe.
Is that hot enough for you? It's a bit fierce, actually.
I thought we could spice things up a bit.
Are you not happy with the way things are?
Yeah. Well, we live with your family, don't we?
So there's always room for improvement.
What? HE COUGHS
I thought you liked chilli.
I do to a point.
Well, it's fine for me.
Whoa, whoa. All right, hang on, you did wash your hands, right?
Yes, Steven! Of course I washed my hands! I'm not stupid!
OK, I was just saying. FRONT DOOR OPENS
Louie, Louise, let's take your muddy shoes off in the hall, please.
Ian rang. Um...
He's gone straight to the restaurant to change the entire menu. He...
He sounded like he was crying. Sorry.
No, honestly. No, it's fine.
Oh! Lauren? I'm so sorry, but will you just have Arthur for an hour?
I've got a bit of a situation at home.
Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah. Thank you.
What kind of geezer lets his own mum do bird for him?
I'm not your average mum, Mick.
Just... Just wait, all right?
We'll go down the Magistrates Court and I'll give them the cash and...
Mick! It's out of your hands.
Just hold up a minute. Hold up a minute. Just stick to the story!
Or we'll both get nicked.
Right, Bex is at the shops.
She won't be long, so let's just keep it short, yeah?
Well, Martin thinks that it's best if we keep a bit of distance,
just until we know what the school's decided.
Between Bex and Shaki, yes. But Mum and Arthur...?
Look, I don't want to upset anyone. But she's forcing my hand, mate. She's raised a pervert.
Oh, Martin! No, come on! It's not like Arthur's going to start sexting because he's
been to baby yoga with Carmel. And it was Bex who started it all anyway,
by sending a photo of Shaki's privates to all at sundry.
And why did she have pictures like that in the first place?
Because top knot sent it to her. I mean, how can you not see how wrong that is?
They're just copying what they see all these celebrities...
I told him at the time... Whoa, whoa!
You told him at the time? You knew about that photo?
Only after he sent it and I told him it was a bad call. Kush!
I didn't take it that seriously!
It's a peer pressure thing, isn't it? They all seem to be at it.
He's actually trying to justify it. No, he's not.
What I'm trying to say is that they're not the only kids to
get drawn into such stupid behaviour. Dangerous behaviour!
I've told Shaki that it's dangerous. I am dealing with it.
What about you? What are you talking about? Well, you're just busy pointing fingers.
What about Bex's part in all of this? Well, she's the victim! Shaki is distraught! He's very sensitive!
He sent a picture of his privates to my daughter and he justified it!
No, no. That's not what happened. Let's just calm down.
How am I supposed to calm down when you are stopping
me seeing my grandson? And you've got a nerve anyway!
Arthur's not even yours! Only cos he couldn't keep it in his pants!
You know what? You're actually starting to wind me up now! Good!
Kush, Kush, Kush! Right, don't rise to it, all right? He's upset.
Let's just behave like adults.
I am beginning to think that Arthur would be better off brought
up by his real dad, rather than a man who is forever losing his
wig and a woman who has got mental problems!
You want to see mental? Yeah? You want to see mental?
You want to see mental?!
Look, I'm sorry. I couldn't leave Marie on her own with that queue.
He wouldn't say till you got here.
I wanted to give you the...news as
a family because I will need
Oh, my God!
The truth is I haven't got much time left,
unless I make some massive changes.
Because diabetes kills. I don't know
how I let myself get like this.
I don't know whether it's because I work in a kitchen,
or just laziness...
Sorry, sorry, Dad.
So you don't have cancer? No, thank God, obviously!
So, it's diabetes we're talking about.
Yeah. Type two. He's diabetic!
Well, no, not as...such.
I mean, the doc said I was at high risk.
I mean, the good thing is I've got a second chance to make some changes.
Cos...you...haven't got it?
Well, no, but if I carry on as I am,
then yeah, it's a done deal.
I mean, I've got to make massive changes, you know.
Diet, exercise, a whole new outlook.
But watching Jane, I mean, it's been humbling,
seeing her got to hell at back and learning how to walk again.
I mean, with all your help, I want to match that courage.
To be honest, Ian, not having diabetes yet,
that ain't exactly a fair comparison.
Yeah, but what I meant is... I know what you meant, love.
And we will do everything we can to help you, won't we?
Yeah, yeah. Course we will.
Team Beale all the way, right?
Get your backside out of my house! Leave it, leave it!
Seriously, Stace! I tell you what, you will never see Arthur again!
Never! DOORBELL RINGS
Don't you say that to me. All right! Calm down! Calm down! Mum!
Mum! Martin, get her out! Get her out. You've made your point.
DOORBELL RINGS Get her out! You have made your point.
Mr and Mrs Fowler?
You remember Luke Ayshford from Social Service?
We need another word with Rebecca.
Yeah, she's just popped out.
What's happened now?
It's private, if you don't mind.
The Kazemis were just leaving. Yeah.
Me and Babe...
We kept it quiet from Mick.
We knew he'd go mad, he'd try and stop us.
I'm not proud of what I've done, but that's what happened. Is it?
I just told you, didn't I? Well, you just told me a different
version from what you said a month ago.
I thought we could pay the fine.
But we can't.
And now it's a custodial sentence and I can't sleep at night.
The fact is...
The fact is Mick is innocent.
He's a decent boy, my son.
All he's ever done is...try to earn an honest living and look
after his family and I am part of that.
And that's why I want to do the right thing and own up.
And be the mum to him that he deserves.
You should have told me as soon as you knew about that photo.
How can I defend you against that lot if I don't even know the
full truth? I don't need you to defend me.
I need you to back off.
I said, if you just leave it for a while with Arthur,
but no, you had to go wading in, didn't you?
Don't you care they're stopping us seeing him? He is your son!
It's your own son you should be focusing on!
Well, it might help if you didn't keep his secrets!
You're upset. Well, think about how Stacey must be feeling.
You used her bipolar against her! They criticised my parenting!
So you threatened to take Arthur off them!
We'll be lucky if we ever get to see him again!
Actually, do you know what? That's...
That's probably easier all round, actually.
How can you say that?
It's just the pain and all the aggro and then you've got the cops
and you've got the Social Services turning up every five minutes!
Who'd be a parent?
How'd it go?
If you hadn't have sent that stupid photo!
Go home, Shaki!
Why do you think Rebecca participated in
a sexualised photograph?
How would we know?
Are you saying that we encouraged it?
Are you serious? Not at all.
But it's important we make sure Rebecca's family environment
is safe and secure. KEY IN LOCK
They just need to have a word with you.
The thing is, Rebecca,
we found a series of topless selfies on your phone.
But... But I thought I'd deleted them.
They were backed up to your cloud.
You're not in any trouble, Rebecca, we just need to talk about them.
I understand you want to revise your previous statement.
Where's Arthur? Change of plans.
Oh. Let's get this agenda nailed then, shall we?
People are going to want to know what's going on at the meeting,
otherwise why would they attend?
Obviously. That's why we're here, right?
Yeah. You're in a bit of a hurry, ain't you?
Do you want a cup of tea first, or...? No, I just...
I want to get this done, yeah? Carmel, what's, um...?
Martin and Stacey cancelled my gran day with Arthur.
Because of all this Shaki and Bex business, you know?
Well, OK. Look, you know, things are awkward now,
but they're going to cool off, you know?
I lost it, Dee.
They said I was a bad influence and I just blew. That's just ridiculous.
Maybe they've got a point.
I mean, Shaki's up to his neck in trouble.
Kush practically hates me and now I'm banned from seeing my grandson.
Oh, darling. Look. OK.
Is it possible that you're all just overreacting a little bit?
Cos this is new territory,
this...sexting and cyber bullying and all the rest.
You know? I never had any of that with my kids and God knows,
it was hard enough without it.
I just feel so useless! Come here. Come here.
Oh, baby. This too shall pass.
Lincoln used that in one of his speeches,
and do you know what it means?
I know what it means, yeah. I just wish I believed it.
We'll be in touch.
Dad... Dad, this isn't what it looks like.
So, this is what Michelle was talking about the other week
when...she must have walked in on you sending pictures,
dirty pictures, to Shakil?
No. No, I didn't send them anywhere. So why did you take them, then?
I don't know.
Cos everyone does, I guess.
But I deleted them. Obviously not.
I thought I did. I swear. Bex, things don't just disappear.
Yeah, OK! I get it! Well, you don't, obviously, do you?
Otherwise you wouldn't have sent the pictures of Shakil about to
everyone! All right. You just don't understand!
It's not even... We have had the Social Services assess us,
just in case we're influencing your behaviour!
I know it's embarrassing.
Yeah. Yeah, because it is my business!
Imagine having to talk about your naked selfies with your parents.
We wouldn't have taken them, would we? Yeah, because you didn't have Smartphones!
Your mum is going to do her nut!
Please, please, please do not tell Mum.
I've got to, ain't I?
She trusts me. Well, she used to.
The police have dropped it, all right?
Let's just wait until we hear from the school what's what before
we tell Sonia.
But you ain't having this.
And you are banned from all social media till I say so!
Right, better be getting Arthur back.
I'm just looking for a gym for Ian.
Oh, yeah. Steven said there was going to be a health kick.
What's wrong with the gym round here?
Well, Ian reckons it's a bit low rent.
Cos he's obviously landed gentry himself, ain't he?
Right, detox the kitchens, so there's no temptations for Dad when he gets home.
Oi! Excuse me, but these are mine.
Yeah, they're full of sugar, Lauren. I'm not diabetic!
Neither is Ian, by all accounts. Yeah, but he will be, Lauren,
if we don't take this seriously. So that means the whole household.
Listen, I had to bin the chocolate mousse as well. But, um...
I was thinking I could sneak some stuff in later if you want.
You know what?
The moment has seriously gone, Steven.
Here you are.
Should calm you down. You're wired. We all are.
If Mick's in the nick, then Shirley's going to have the
perfect opportunity to stay here and help out, leaving me with Mum.
Is that all you can think about?
I tried them both, but they ain't answering. That's it then, isn't it? He's been done.
Thank God! Hey.
Trace, can you give us 15, please? Sure.
You're a sight for sore eyes.
Sounds like you've had a day of it.
No prizes for guessing who told you that.
She was pretty upset.
Yeah, it's complicated. You know.
With Arthur... I know he's not "mine" mine, and that's fine,
but the idea of never seeing him again, I...
I get that one.
Oh, man! I'm sorry!
Sorry. No. No, don't be.
I made a choice.
You really didn't have that luxury, did you?
people say stupid things, but you're all good people. You know?
Especially your mum.
I was angry. We both were.
Still am, if I'm honest with you.
Yeah, but you love each other.
And that's more important, isn't it?
It's got to be.
You're a good friend, Denise.
To both of us.
Always will be.
Believe me, I know. You don't have to tell me. Should have been me.
Don't, Mick. No, it should have been Babe.
Anyway, I tried to graft her, and she weren't having none of it.
You know what she's like. Just a bit.
And she will say I drove her to it.
So, there's no fine? Well, it's one or the other.
So, we use the takings and the poker money to pay Konrad.
Well, it's good that she's gone and done it.
It's six weeks, right?
With good behaviour, she could be out in two. Shirley? Good behaviour?
She's playing a blinder. You all know that!
You think she's making this massive sacrifice,
but she's just doing it to punish me! Teen, don't.
Straight up, we'll all get involved with Sylvie.
She's doing bird for us, for crying out loud!
Shirl's a wrong un, ain't she? You're meant to be having a nap.
Anyway, the point is,
no more wallowing, we've got to make it worthwhile.
What do we tell Mum? The truth. This part of it anyway. All right?
Shirley wanted to sort the fine, she wouldn't take no for an answer, so
you know, eyes, teeth, all the rest of it,
let's get down there and give it some, yeah?
Shirl's doing a stretch! Yeah, ain't we all?
KNOCK ON DOOR
Dinner's ready. I don't want anything.
I'm confused, more than angry, Bex.
I don't get it.
I'm still me, Dad.
It's all there. In cash.
And there's a booze on me for being so patient. Another time.
I've got to go back to the shop.
Please, tell Shirley maybe I'll see her when she's back from Blackpool.
She did something, he said. There's trouble.
Are you all right, Sylvie?
Then where is she? Who? Shirley! Ain't you listening?
Me and Honey ain't been out for ages. So I got us a babysitter in.
Aw, bless. Enjoy yourselves. Yep.
Oh, and I've got complementary nuts and popcorn, if you want.
All right. The old free salty nuts gag, eh?
Have some of them, makes you thirsty, got to buy more booze, ain't you?
Ain't Wikileaks, bruv. No-one's forcing you. No, no, no. You're all right. We'll have one each.
Mick, has something happened to Shirley?
Why do you ask? Your mum, you know.
She's got herself a bit wound up, worrying about her.
I'll take her home. No, Teen, listen.
It's going to come out sooner or later. Aw, she's not ill, is she?
No, no, no. It's nothing like that. She's fine. She's...
She's doing a bit of bird, just a couple of weeks.
You know, it's no secret that we've had unwanted aggravation.
Good old Shirl. She's taken one for the team.
Blimey! Well, I suppose she knows the drill, don't she? Shut up.
She ain't been inside before.
MOBILE RINGS That'll be your mother.
Just got to get this.
She'll be all right, Shirley. Tough old bird, ain't she?
Seriously though, Billy. I'd have thought she'd been inside
before now. Yeah, I know. I would as well.
OK. Just keep me posted, yeah?
What did she say?
It wasn't your mum. It was your nan's duty solicitor.
They're doing her for perverting the course of justice.
They're doubling her sentence.
She's going to be banged up for three months.
