Ronnie realises that her baby is coming and calmly makes her way to the hospital alone via the Tube. While travelling, she sees Heather, who is oblivious that she is in labour until Ronnie tells her. Later, Heather sees Glenda and Roxy having a drink at The Vic and excitedly mentions that she saw Ronnie on her way to the hospital in labour. Unfazed by hearing about Ronnie, Glenda is left on her own in the pub, while Roxy rushes to be with her sister. When Roxy arrives at the hospital, Ronnie makes it clear that Roxy is not welcome. However, it's not long before Ronnie's son is born and all is forgiven between the two sisters. Jack, meanwhile, has not made it to the hospital in time.

Dot and Max visit Ronnie to offer their congratulations. On their way out, Glenda arrives and Dot advises her that Ronnie needs her rest. Glenda tries to dismiss this, but Roxy tells her mother to come back another day. Roxy then receives a phone call from Jack, who wants to talk to Ronnie. He explains that he is still in Dubai, but will be home very soon. Ronnie is elated as she lies with her sister and newborn son.

Kat Slater and Alfie Moon from EastEnders
Meanwhile, Mo and Alfie are getting agitated with Kat's 'painful contractions', which Mo thinks are exaggerated. Charlie is not so sure and sympathises, only to realise that Kat just wants some attention! Later, Kat goes into labour for real as her waters break, but she is in the barrel store and no-one can hear her scream at first. Eventually, Alfie, Mo and Charlie rush to be with her. She is too far gone to get to hospital, so Mo is forced to deliver the baby. After a tense time, Kat gives birth to a baby boy and everyone cheers from behind the bar.

Elsewhere, Tiffany secretly scribbles out Carol's face from some of the family photos at home. At The Arches, Whitney tries to convince Connor that it was not her that set him up and invites him out for New Year. He doesn't seem overly excited at first but eventually makes plans to see Whitney again. Later, an excited Whitney tells Tiffany her good news - but with what she saw yesterday, Tiffany doesn't know what to do. Meanwhile, Carol decides to surprise Connor with a romantic picnic meal on the floor of the bookies. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
