here’s only so much
Cash in the Attic you can watch. Once the number one grafter/ dogsbody in husband Ian’s business empire, Jane is now stuck at home in a wheelchair, and she’s bored. Still, it looks as if there may be a plus side to having so much time on her hands. In her quest to flex the old grey matter, she logs onto the restaurant accounts this week. And that could be very bad news for devious Steven...
Ian’s stepson has spent the last few months siphoning off the profits to pay off his debts – all the while convincing his numpty stepfather that he’s an Alan Sugar in the making. Girlfriend Lauren
Tis well aware of what he’s up to, and knows he could be busted at any moment – in a bid to keep his missus occupied, Ian has tasked Jane with finding ways for Beale’s to save money.
Desperate to keep Jane away from the books, Lauren comes up with a way to distract her, although this doesn’t do much to improve relations between her and her fella. Steven’s still hung up about not being treated like baby Louie’s proper dad, and becomes even moodier when Lauren happily tells Jane how Peter watched the video she sent him of the tot saying ‘dada’. Her plan doesn’t work for long. Later, when Jane is on her own, she decides to make herself useful and whisks out the laptop to give the finances a going-over.
She soon twigs that things don’t quite add up. Will she work out what’s been going on, or will Steven come up with an excuse to put her off the scent?

Has she just blown his chance to save ‘Fiw’s’ life?
