TEN years ago, Stacey’s Christmas was ruined when the Brannings sat down to watch a DVD of her snogging her fatherin-law, but it seems she still hasn’t learned her lesson about spending the festive season with Max.
Abi and Lauren make it clear they want nothing to do with him, so he turns to Stacey instead – much to her husband’s annoyance. But Max is going to face bigger problems than Martin when Karen finds Stacey’s stolen phone among Chatham and Riley’s stash and sets out to return it to its rightful owner – complete with Jane’s voicemails.
It seems Max, above, is about to suffer the ultimate downfall as the Brannings’ world is ripped apart...
Mick decides to drop out of Aidan’s job, only for the jailbird to turn up with another “present”. As the Carters prepare for their vow renewal, Aidan explains that the gift was a gun – and he’s called the police to tip them off about its presence at the Vic. Will the threats and Linda’s obvious unhappiness at leaving her home convince Mick to go through with the heist after all?
Meanwhile, Fi is disgusted at the extent of her family’s deception and Karen reaches out to her sister Kandice.
