Last week, viewers saw the problems between the pair intensify as an upset Esther lashed out at Maddie for spreading rumours about her all over college.
Scheming Maddie has managed to convince most people that she is the innocent victim in the situation, but upcoming episodes see her continue to secretly torment Esther (Jazmine Franks).
As Esther hosts a fashion showcase at the college, it could be her chance to get things back on track - but events take a turn for the worse when doctored photos appear on her Powerpoint presentation.
Maddie (Scarlett Bowman) is responsible for the sabotage, and her efforts pay off better than she could have ever imagined as an embarrassed Esther trips over her own dress while fleeing from the catwalk, causing it to come off.
After the humiliating moment, Phoebe Jackson (Mandip Gill) proves to be the most loyal ally to Esther, vowing to make Maddie pay for her actions.
When Maddie, Sinead and Ruby's clothes go missing in the showers at college the next day, is Phoebe behind the stunt?
