Max is pleased with Whitney's work and gives her £20 for helping him. Janine is having less luck, however, and after being thrown out of The Vic she isn't in the mood to hear about Whitney's good fortune and flies into a rage.
Later, Max and Whitney share a battle of wine together. Suddenly, Whitney throws herself on Max and he tries to push her away. At that moment, Lauren enters the room and she drags Whitney off a shocked Max…
