Derek argues with Jack.
Billy's big day has finally arrived and the Olympic torch is coming to Walford. However, it starts off with business as usual for Billy as he visits Janine at the hospital to run an errand. While there, a furious Janine realises that Billy has told Michael about the combination to the safe being changed. Billy insists that both of them should start putting their daughter first rather than worrying about money, but Janine remains displeased and sacks him on the spot.

Later, the Queen Vic's football team prepares for another match, but Billy isn't sure whether he should play as he may not get back in time to carry the torch. Keen to keep hold of the publicity surrounding Billy at the moment, Alfie convinces him not to let the team down. However, as the team are travelling home on the tube following a defeat, tempers become frayed between the Branning brothers. As Derek lunges at Jack and Max, a hapless Anthony panics and pulls the emergency alarm - causing the train to stop. Billy is livid - could this stop him from getting back in time to carry the torch?

Lola goes into labour.
Meanwhile, Lola pays a visit to Jay at The Arches. However, as she waits for him in Derek's car, she is startled to realise that her waters have broken. Scared about the situation, Lola rushes off without saying anything to Jay. The teenager is reluctant to accept what is happening, but as she heads into McKlunkey's, it soon becomes clear to everyone that she has gone into labour…

Elsewhere, Cora and Patrick go to Joy's house clearance, as arranged last week. This means that the pair have to carry on pretending to be a couple. It's clear that Patrick genuinely likes Cora, but she is struggling to admit that she feels the same way. Later at The Vic, Joy confronts Cora about her relationship with Patrick, having been tipped off by Tyler that they are faking. However, Cora protests that it's the real deal and tries to prove it by kissing Patrick in front of everyone!

Also, Tanya's concerns for Lucy and Bobby grow when she sees Bobby accidentally cut himself in the café, a bored Kat sends a text to her mystery lover as she holds the fort at The Vic, while Zainab reluctantly takes on longer hours at the Minute Mart as she realises that the family are in a desperate financial situation.
