When Bianca (Patsy Palmer) finally agrees that Ray can start spending time with his son Morgan (Devon Higgs), he decides to make the most of the situation - arriving on the Butchers' doorstep and offering to cook dinner for the family.
However, things soon go wrong when Ray mentions that he also has a daughter. Unhappy over the revelation, Bianca tells him to leave - declaring that she and her children don't need anybody else.
Ray (Chucky Venn) is undeterred by Bianca's reaction, however, and decides to apply for the cook position at The Vic so that he can be closer to Morgan.
The next day, when Kim (Tameka Empson) is looking after Morgan and takes him into the pub, the youngster is surprised to see Ray with his daughter Sasha.
Ray is pleased to have the chance to introduce the pair, but Bianca is furious when she finds out what has happened - reminding him that the situation is confusing enough for the kids already.
With Ray keen to stick around in Walford for Morgan's sake, will he be able to work things out with Bianca?
