So­nia plans to leave Wal­ford – and Tina

ife hasn’t been much fun lately for poor old So­nia, who’s not that into girl­friend Tina any more and is also feel­ing the strain of hav­ing to look af­ter Sylvie. So when she gets a chance to move away from Wal­ford, she’s over the moon. Her plan is to leave – alone – and start a new life else­where.

Dot can see that So­nia is un­der a lot of strain and urges her to put her­self and Bex first for once. How­ever, when So­nia asks Ian if Bex can have the day off so she can spend it with her, she gets a snappy re­sponse. Jane later con­fesses to Son that things be­tween her and Ian are dif­fi­cult, which ex­plains his grouch­i­ness.

Just as So­nia is feel­ing the weight of the world on her

Lshoul­ders, she gets a call to say she’s been of­fered a new job away from the Square. It’s just the tonic she needs and she ex­cit­edly tells Jane she in­tends to take the po­si­tion, but doesn’t want Tina to go with her.

Then she won­ders if her leav­ing would be good for her teenage daugh­ter. She con­fides in Stacey, who sug­gests that Bex could move in with her and Martin.

Fi­nally, things ap­pear to be go­ing So­nia’s way. All she has to do now is break the news to Tina.

So­nia be­gins by re­veal­ing that she’s had a job offer and that it means leav­ing Wal­ford. Tina re­acts by sug­gest­ing that she and Sylvie will come along, too, and So­nia doesn’t quite know how to break the news.

Things get even trick­ier when Martin ac­cuses So­nia of be­ing self­ish for even con­sid­er­ing leav­ing Bex be­hind.

Will So­nia take the job and rel­ish her free­dom? Or will she once again feel duty bound to stay and look af­ter every­body else?

Tina’s thrilled by So­nia’s news – but she’s not part of the plan

Stacey gives her friend much-needed sup­port
