Danielle confesses her shocking secret to Stacey
Aired Thursday, Feb 5 2009 at 19:30 GMT on BBC One

As Ronnie and Danielle leave the Square for the clinic, Stacey frantically searches for the clinic's address. When they arrive, Danielle's in disbelief over what she's about to do and begins to cry. Ronnie tries to comfort her, reassuring her that she'd be an excellent mother. Danielle begins to think about the life that's growing inside her, but Ronnie insists that she's talking about a bundle of cells, not a baby. Danielle continues to question herself, before asking Ronnie what she did with her baby girl when she was younger. Ronnie reluctantly confirms that she gave her baby up for adoption, but that's as much as she's willing to divulge. The doctor interrupts their conversation and invites Danielle into the consultation room, suggesting that 'her mum' go in, too.

After the consultation, Danielle asks Ronnie if she'll return to the clinic with her tomorrow. As she's about to take her first pill, Stacey bursts through the door and pleads with her not to go through with it. Danielle, however, swallows the pill and returns home. Back at the Slaters', Danielle talks to Stacey about the future and the conversation soon turns to Ronnie. When Stacey asks Danielle why she chose Ronnie of all people to go with her, Stacey's gobsmacked when Danielle reveals that Ronnie is her mother.

Meanwhile, Jane and Christian are dealing with their father's sudden appearance in Walford. Jane tries to defend him, while Christian can't believe that his sister seems to have forgotten his past actions. Linda's getting on well with her husband, but she quickly breaks the news to him that things are over between them. Roger tries to talk to his son, but Christian quickly shoots him down, fuming that he's had the audacity to turn up out of the blue after all these years. Linda slowly begins to soften towards Roger and tells Christian not to be so hard on him – she has to take some of the blame for him going off with another woman. When asked whether she's returning to Florida, Linda fails to answer.

Elsewhere, Janine tries to sweet talk Darren into working for her; Tiffany still wants a birthday party, but Bianca's still against the idea; re-thinking Janine's offer, Darren decides to accept; Ricky manages to strike a deal with Ian to hold Tiffany's party at the café; and Whitney receives the news that Tony is pleading 'not guilty' and that there will be a trial.
