PASS THE BABY

The fight for baby Abi is fast turn­ing into Pass The Par­cel as war­ring fac­tions com­pete for cus­tody. With Max’s bristly beard in per­ma­nent dan­ger of scalp­ing the poor child, I’m not sure he should be the right­ful owner. Let’s hope he passes the par­cel quickly and con­trols his fury when he hears that Cora’s solic­i­tor knows his mar­riage to Rainie is a fake. It’s a volatile sit­u­a­tion, and de­spite Rainie say­ing they all need to do what’s best for Abi (fi­nally!), Cora lashes out, leav­ing Rainie in­jured. Max (pic­tured, with Abi) is stunned when, in the chaos, the po­lice ar­rive to take Abi away. Will any­one ever get to un­wrap that last piece of pa­per and win the baby par­cel?

There’s a lot of baby stuff at the mo­ment, with Bev hatch­ing a plan and try­ing to con­vince Hay­ley of what is best for her daugh­ter. There’s not a par­ent in Wal­ford who ever seems to know what’s right for their chil­dren, which is why they all grow up to be such a mess.

Poor Mar­tin is strug­gling in the over­crowded house­hold and it’s clear he can’t get to the bath­room in the morn­ings to put a comb through his hair. The prob­lem is slightly al­le­vi­ated when Ruby de­cides to leave and Stacey man­ages to land her one of Jack’s flats. Tired of Max at the house, Mar­tin tells Stacey he has to go. Oh, if only you hadn’t fallen out with prop­erty mogul Jack, Max.

It comes to some­thing when the most cheer­ful part of the week is Dot and Dr Legg dis­cussing fu­neral plans. Florists on standby...
