Kerry discovers she’s pregnant – but is her fling or her fiancé the daddy?
He’s already impregnated Charity in a flash. Has super-fertile Ross done the same to Kerry
Wyatt, too? When she discovers she’s up the duff this week, the beautician assumes it’s the result of their fumble in the back of his cab.
At first, Kerry tries to convince herself that her sickness is the result of a stomach bug, but when she’s overwhelmed by nausea, she realises that she may be pregnant, and does a test. She ’fesses up to Joanie and, when she finally has the courage to look at the result, she discovers that it’s positive.
‘She’s absolutely devastated,’ says Laura Norton, who plays her. ‘She convinces herself that it will be Ross’s. It has to be because of the way her life has panned out so far. She can’t imagine it will be Dan’s.’
Kerry is about to break the bad news to her fiancé when she’s interrupted. Later, she explains to Joanie that she plans to get rid of the baby because Ross, not Dan, is probably the dad.
Joanie tries to talk her out of it, but Kerry heads for the clinic, where she’s disappointed to hear that she will have to wait for a scan before she can book an abortion.
‘She goes into denial and says that having it isn’t even an option for her,’ adds Laura. ‘She just has to get rid of it and she wants it all over and done with as quickly as possible. She wants to pretend it never happened.’
Kerry buckles under the strain and, when Joanie reveals that she’s getting time off to go with Zak on a visit to Belle, the gobby Geordie worries about being on her own.
Will she crack and tell Dan the truth about her fling?
Concerned Joanie queries Kerry’s abortion decision… … but Kerry’s made her mind up that the baby can’t be Dan’s
It’s that man again: Ross has been sowing wild oats
