Tanya appears in court
Aired Friday, Jan 2 2009 at 20:00 GMT on BBC One

It's breakfast time and Max is trying to get the girls to eat some food. Max is suited and booted ready for Tanya's hearing. Max, Bradley, Lauren and Abi head for the court, dropping Oscar off at Dot's on the way. Meanwhile, at the court, Tanya decides that Max is right and she should plead not guilty - her kids are her world.

Tanya's terrified as she takes to the dock and she's frustrated at Max for allowing the girls into the court room. Lauren's eyes meet Tanya's across the room and in a moment of madness, Tanya pleads 'guilty', resulting in Lauren screaming at her mum. The judge becomes frustrated by the turn of events and decides to postpone the proceedings later without the children present.

Lauren's distraught about what's just happened to Tanya and blames Max for leading her into a false sense of security - he told her that Tanya would plead 'not guilty'. A helpless Max listens on, however, as Lauren reveals the truth: "It weren't Mum driving that car. It weren't her that tried to kill you. It was me, Dad."

Elsewhere, Whitney's obsessed with finding her biological mum; Bianca recounts the disappointment when she found her real dad; Janine sympathises with Whitney's quest and hands her the real address she found in Bianca's bag; Stacey's torn over telling Jean about Sean; Roxy turns to Ronnie for support, but doesn't like what she hears; Whitney slips out the door in search of her real mum; and Tamwar and Libby call their mothers' bluffs.
