Robert’s des­per­ate for a child of his own, but with Michelle al­ready the mother of two grown-up sons and hav­ing trag­i­cally lost a baby not so long ago, she’s less than keen on the idea of go­ing there again.

But this week re­luc­tant Michelle has a re­think and tells Robert she’s up for them try­ing for a child of their own.

She has no idea that he’s been mak­ing baby plans else­where and is hop­ing to fa­ther a child with broody Kate!

Hav­ing kept their partners, Rana and Michelle, in the dark about their par­ent­ing plan, Kate and Robert press on and furtively ar­range an ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion at a fer­til­ity clinic. Ly­ing about where he’s go­ing, Robert’s in hot wa­ter when Ryan tries to track him down.

Sneak­ing around

His lie gets back to wor­ried Michelle who turns to Carla, con­fid­ing they’re at odds over start­ing a fam­ily. Later, Michelle de­mands to know where Robert’s been. But in­stead of com­ing clean, he lies again, say­ing that he needed some time to think.

Af­ter a nar­row es­cape at the fer­til­ity clinic – where Kate is forced to hide in a cup­board to avoid Michelle, who’s there for a coun­selling ses­sion – they de­cide to go ahead with the IVF and are brac­ing them­selves to have ‘the con­ver­sa­tion’ with their partners.

How­ever, as Robert gears up to tell Michelle his big news, he’s blown away when she says she’s happy to start try­ing for a fam­ily af­ter all!

With that, Robert wants to back out of his plan with Kate. Can he get to her be­fore she comes clean to Rana?
