The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

As first years go, baby Abi Bran­ning didn’t have a great one. Her mother died af­ter fall­ing off a pub roof and now she’s in the care of her ly­ing, cheat­ing grand­fa­ther and his former junkie fake wife.

Ea­ger to prove she can be a re­spon­si­ble mother, Rainie of­fers to take charge of Abi’s birth­day party, but when she has a dizzy spell and drops the cake, the party – like all Wal­ford cel­e­bra­tions – starts to fall apart at the seams.

It’s not just Rainie’s plans that go wrong. Karen gives Bernadette a makeover in or­der to im­press Tif­fany, and ends up de­stroy­ing her bath­room. It’s hard to imag­ine how their pigsty of a home could pos­si­bly be made any worse. It’s harder still to un­der­stand why any­one would let Karen, a woman for whom a hair scrunchie and a T-shirt with no ketchup stains is the epit­ome of chic, give them a makeover. And could it have been for noth­ing? Aware of Bernadette’s crush, Evie kisses Tif­fany to make her jeal­ous (pic­tured).

Karen asks Mitch, her ex, to re­pair the bath­room and he ar­rives with a young­ster called Bai­ley in tow. He claims she’s a friend’s daugh­ter. But, slip­pery char­ac­ter that he is, there’s bound to be more to it.

Mean­while the deal­ing rum­bles on as Tif­fany takes one of Evie’s drug run­ners un­der her wing.
