FIZ AND TY UNITE OVER HOPE PLOY
HOPE Stape will play her mum and stepdad off against each other and con them both out of a pair of trainers.
But when Fiz is told Hope has been caught selling them for cash in a sneaky money-making plan, she realises she and Tyrone need to make changes in caring for their two daughters.
Tyrone, who split from Fiz following his romp with Gemma Winter, supports her when they talk to Hope.

An insider said: “Fiz and Tyrone belong together. He made a stupid mistake with Gemma and regretted it.

And after being conned by Terry, who pretended to be Gerry’s long-lost uncle, he hits rock bottom.
As he mulls over everything that has happened, it’s Brenda who is there for him.
