Lauren wants nothing to do with Max after witnessing his encounter with Whitney, despite his protestations that it was Whitney who came onto him. Tanya tells Max that Lauren and Abi will be living with her from now on, so Max storms round to Whitney's flat to demand she tells the truth. However, Whitney is hiding in her room and once Max has gone, Janine informs her housemate to lie and insist it was Max who was to blame. Later, Rob surprises Whitney and takes her for a drink at The Vic. When Whitney explains everything that's happened with Max, Rob says that she should come and stay with him for a while. He even gives her a phone so that she can get in contact if she wants to take him up on the offer.
Later, Max drags Whitney to the salon to explain what really happened. When Carol sees Whitney using her new phone, she suspects that she has stolen it and confiscates it, but Whitney eventually gets it back. She then heads over to Max's to apologise to Lauren. Lauren won't listen so Whitney also sends an apology via text once she has left. Rob soon shows up again and Whitney finally agrees to stay with him, and they drive off together…
