Roxy goes into premature labour
Aired Monday, Nov 17 2008 at 20:00 GMT on BBC One

Unbeknown to Sean, Archie's calling an ambulance for Roxy who's gone into labour. She's screaming out for Sean, while Peggy goes in search of Ronnie. As the ambulance arrives, Roxy refuses to leave without Sean, but Archie's tells her that she has to go to the hospital for the sake of her baby - he'll find Sean for her. As they enter the delivery room, Ronnie's cradling Roxy and vents her anger at Sean letting her down. As the midwife asks everyone to leave the room, Archie encourages Ronnie to stay. As Roxy pushes, she fears for her baby's health when the midwife tells her that they'll need a paediatrician as soon as possible.

While Stacey tries to get Sean to see reason in the club, Roxy's in severe pain and soon begins to apologise for her past. With Jack playing on her mind, she's about to say something when the midwife announces that she can see the baby's head and asks Roxy to stop pushing. The baby soon arrives and the room falls silent as Dr. Mackie begins his attempts at resuscitating the newborn. Soon, a faint cry fills the room, prompting a hoard of doctors to surround Roxy's daughter.

The newborn is transferred to the neonatal unit, just as Christian arrives and takes a broken Roxy in his arms. Roxy's also handed a photo of her child before she falls asleep. A worn-out Roxy soon wakes from her sleep and struggles out of bed in a frantic search of her baby, while Sean hears that Roxy's in labour. Sean charges into the hospital and finds Ronnie looking at the picture of her new niece. Roxy, meanwhile, is motioned into a room by Dr Mackie and holds one her daughter's tiny hands with tears rolling down her face. When Roxy sees Sean, she hesitantly tells him that she wants nothing more to do with him. Archie watches on with a sense of satisfaction.

Elsewhere, Christian explains his relationship with his mother to Lucy. Jane walks in and is surprised to see a load of boxes belonging to their mum and realises that she's left their father. Linda's seemingly uncomfortable around her son, while Jane tries to call her father. Linda, however, reveals that this time, he left her. Jane comforts her mother as she recalls her father's affair with a nurse and hesitantly suggests that she stay around. Later in the café, Christian's happy when he hears that Linda's leaving, but Peter reminds him that it he had the chance to see Cindy again, he'd jump at it. As Linda's about to leave, Christian grabs her suitcase and tells her that he's sent the taxi away - she can stay. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
