Jean (Gillian Wright) remains horrified at being wrongly branded a benefit fraudster in the coming days and begins to behave strangely, sparking concern from Kat and Alfie.
After Jean has been for an appointment at the benefit fraud office, she returns home without wearing a coat despite the cold weather - which the Moons realise is a worrying sign.
Jean later becomes convinced that Shenice (Lily Harvey) is an angel sent from Stacey to save her from the authorities. Still in her pyjamas, Jean tries to take Shenice out ice-skating - but the youngster realises something is wrong and rushes home at the first opportunity.
When the Moons learn how much Jean is struggling, Alfie (Shane Richie) suggests that she needs to be at the hospital as they can't cope with her bipolar episode alone.
However, Kat (Jessie Wallace) remains determined that Jean should be at home for Christmas and tries to play down Alfie's concerns.
With Kat and Alfie's marital problems also coming to the fore once again, can they all defy the odds and have a happy Christmas?
