Phil, Lola and Billy are determined to impress as they prepare for the visit from the social services officer. When Sharon arrives, she is surprised to hear from Phil that they're now going for foster care of Lexi rather than residency, as they stand a better chance of winning the case that way. When the officer arrives, Phil and Sharon manage to put on a good performance, but things turn slightly sour when they're asked about Ben pleading guilty to manslaughter.

Phil struggles with the questions about Ben and makes an excuse to leave the room, but Sharon follows him into the kitchen and reminds him that they're doing this for Lexi. Geared up again, Phil returns to the living room with Sharon and things get back on track as they create a realistic impression of a couple in love.

Later, the officer joins Phil at The Vic to discuss his businesses. When Jack spots the officer, he reveals that he knows him from his old job in the police force. Jack agrees to put in a good word for Phil and Sharon, although he isn't pleased when the officer mentions to him how well-suited the 'happy couple' seem to be.

Roxy gives Syed a piece of her mind.
Meanwhile, Syed is concerned when he is unable to find Christian, but Roxy warns him that he should leave Christian alone until he actually knows what he wants. When the doorbell rings later, Syed hopes that Christian has paid another visit. However, it's actually Amira who he finds on the doorstep. Amira soon drops the bombshell that she is getting married and wants Yasmin to come and live with her and her fiancé in Birmingham.

Elsewhere, Zainab apologises to Masood for walking out on him. She is also shocked to hear that Syed's marriage is already on the rocks, but when she visits her son to discuss it, he warns her to stop interfering. Still feeling guilty, an apologetic Zainab announces to the whole family that she's going to stop complaining and meddling in everyone's lives from now on. The Masood men scoff at this promise, but can Zainab prove them all wrong?

Also today, Kim is startled when she hears that an environmental health officer is doing the rounds, so she dumps bin bags full of out-of-date food into an alley.
