Following his recent decision to confide in Michael, the Walford businessman arranges a family meal in an attempt to be honest with everyone else.
Anthony (Matt Lapinskas) and Tyler (Tony Discipline) are stunned by the news that their father has a secret son and while Anthony quickly expresses a desire to meet him, Tyler is furious that Eddie (David Essex) has lied for so long and accuses him of being ashamed of Craig.
The fact that Vanessa (Zöe Lucker) has turned up at the meal only serves to make matters more complicated, but in the end she proves to be a real peace-maker as she tries to talk Tyler round.
Meanwhile, once the dust has settled, Michael (Steve John Shepherd) makes it clear to Vanessa that he's sick of her pursuit of Eddie and her involvement in family matters.
Michael resorts to desperate measures the next day by offering Vanessa money to leave Albert Square for good. Will Vanessa accept the bribe and will it be the end for her and Eddie?
