Lola is shocked when Phil informs her that he's going on a family holiday to Cornwall with Peggy for two weeks, and he intends to take Lexi with him. Lola questions why Peggy can't just meet Lexi locally, but Phil insists that his mum wants to stay away from Walford.

Fed up with the situation, Lola finds Billy and they make an appointment to see Trish, wanting to see whether it's legal for Phil to do this. However, Trish points out that if they oppose Phil's plans, Lexi will be put into temporary care while he's away. Still not satisfied, Lola wants to see a solicitor…
