Aired Friday, Apr 3 2009 at 18:30 BST on Channel 4

Bel's in a whirl as she begins the preparations for Ram Navami, and the rest of the family are soon caught up in the mêlée. As golden boy Ash appears to be excluded from helping out, the rest of the siblings find themselves under pressure to muck in. Gov makes his displeasure clear about Anita's bullying and even though she tries to defend herself, her voice is lost as the chaos in the kitchen drowns her out.

Seeing the opportunity to steal some booze, Anita helps herself and uses Kris's arrival as a timely diversion. As Kris is welcomed into the family celebrations, Anita finds herself growing in confidence and becoming increasingly cheeky, buoyed by the alcohol. Ash, too, is up to mischief and slyly goads Ravi over his relationship with Kris.

Seizing the moment, Ravi decides it's time to come out to his family. However, his moment is ruined when Anita promptly throws up all over the dining table. Eventually telling everyone, Ravi is shocked to hear that his parents already knew he was gay - nevertheless, they're in for a bigger shock when Ravi tells them he's seeing Kris and that he's actually bi-sexual.

Bel's just upset that Ash and Leila knew about it. However, it's Anita who takes the news the hardest, fearing she'll be bullied for her brother dating the flamboyant transvestite. Kris struggles to cope with Ravi's wish for commitment and although he fancies him, he never wanted more than just a bit of fun. As the ramifications of his honesty hit home, Ravi's left facing a lonely future without Kris by his side.

Michaela and Sasha's arrival signal the start of fun for the girls as a reluctant Amy finds herself caught up in the prom excitement. Realising she's forgotten to give the childminder Leah's favourite cuddly toy - Mr Duck - Amy insists she'll follow them up. Ste calls around, though, and finds Amy in a cleaning frenzy, scrubbing the kitchen.

After reaching into a high cupboard, they're shocked as they discover Amy's waters have broken. Amy insists Ste should call Josh as he's her birth partner, however, he quickly realises things are moving far too swiftly. Making a hasty phone call, Ste calls in the cavalry and is grateful when Daniel and his wife, Abi, arrive. Luckily, Abi's a nurse. Amy and Ste gaze down on their newborn son, totally overawed by what they've created.

An excited Michaela and Sasha head into The Loft and look forward to the night ahead. Josh enjoys being out at the prom and, instead of worrying where Amy is, he grabs Sasha and whisks her onto the dance floor. Insisting he doesn't want to pressure Amy any further, Josh dismisses Michaela and Sasha's suggestion of checking on Amy and continues to party.

Hearing of Amy's in labour is a life-defining moment for Josh and after he wobbles with the pressure of impending fatherhood, he eventually fleeing into the night unable to face her…

Mike and Sarah's relationship is still strained, but there's a clear feeling that both are missing each other. On receiving a call to say that Amy's in labour, an excited Sarah tells Mike the news, which finally brings them together. Agreeing closure on the whole Zoe debacle, they tentatively reach a reconciliation when Mike realises that family means everything to him. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
